If you want to make a name in
the world, life can be difficult. But it’s even more difficult if life refuses
to start. This frustrating scenario faces 24-year old Sasha Clayton,
played by Lecky. Once top-dog at high school with dreams of becoming a singer,
she now lives with her parents in a cramped flat near Stratford, with menial employment 'working in fucking Wetherspoons for 8 pounds an hour.' A single dream shines in a life felt to be going
nowhere: a ticket to freedom, in the form of her first EP.
Lecky, who describes
herself as ‘an actress from the East End’, has appeared on screen in the likes of Skins and Eastenders and honed her writing skills at Soho Theatre Writer's Lab. She uses her Royal Court debut to provide a
voice for the new challenges faced by the next generation of creatives.
Jade Lewis, who worked with debbie tucker green on a profoundly affectionate, passionate
devotion to someone (-noun) at the Royal Court in 2017, directs this world premiere.
