This monologue follows the story of a teenage girl growing up on a rural Wiltshire council estate.
“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. If J-Lo can make it outta the Bronx then Destiny can make it off the Hill Rise estate in Chippenham. She’s fearless, ferocious and up for the fight (she’s had to be). Born below the breadline, she’s desperate to see beyond the neighbourhood and find hope in hopelessness.

This is the story of a teenage girl growing up on a rural Wiltshire council estate. After a big night out takes a turn for the worst, Destiny’s life spirals out of control as she desperately tries to learn how to love and be loved.
Trigger warning: Sexual abuse and violence. Age guidance - suitable for over 14s

“It is captivatingly told in the West Country vernacular of Destiny’s community. With endearing personality, she does them proud.”

“Abundantly clear how much of the world is inaccessible to characters like Destiny: Espeut-Nickless refuses to let theatre be one such place any longer.”
★ ★ ★ ★Edinburgh Fringe Review
