DESTINY

Born below the breadline, she's desperate to see beyond the neighbourhood and find hope in hopelessness.

Suitable for Age 14 +

“They’re sayin I brought it on myself.

Oh yeah, they’ve heard about me. Basically it must’ve been my fault cause I’m me, Destiny”

Destiny dreams big. She dreams glamour. She’s gonna be an MTV Base backing dancer, you watch.


A “captivating” ( ★★★★ The Guardian) show that follows a teenage girl growing up on a Chippenham council estate. Born below the breadline, she's desperate to see beyond the neighbourhood and find hope in hopelessness.


DESTINY was selected for the 2021 Pleasance National Partnerships Award with Bristol Old Vic FERMENT and shortlisted for Theatre West’s Write On Women Award. It has been developed with support from Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol Old Vic FERMENT, Pound Arts, Strike a Light, Wiltshire Creative, The Pleasance, Natural Theatre, Paper Arts, Theatre Bristol, Hawkwood College, Arts Council England and Gane Trust.


For this tour, we have partnered with Tender UK, a charity that works to prevent domestic & sexual violence in the lives of young people using drama and the creative arts. The playtext is available and is published by Methuen.
