Tell us about your show.

Precious Little is an inter-generational story that delves into the meaning behind language and how we communicate, motherhood, queerness, and how we deal with what we can’t control. It’s deeply affecting and darkly funny, with quick scenes and a rotating cast of ten characters following Sarah Brodie, a lesbian linguist who learns unsettling news about her pregnancy, through an emotional journey that will leave her forever changed.

It is part of the Dramatic Works Series at the Vancouver Fringe, which is a special initiative specifically designed for published, scripted dramas.

Describe your show in three words.

Eppsa sauzhinutte (very sweet).

Why should someone come see your show?

Because you want to see a professional script with incredible character work. Or because you want to support a show written, performed, and directed by women. Either way.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

The gorilla in the play is already the superhero. Additionally, the gorilla wears Chanel.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

Awkward Hug is also at The Cultch. It’s an absolutely beautiful show about disability and empathy and we think our audiences would also love this.
