Little Sweet Thing - 2005

by Roy Williams

Tash is tough. At least on the surface. But she can’t afford to drop her tough-girl image. Her brother Kev is out of prison and trying to go straight. But his past has a nasty habit of catching up with him. Can they survive the pressures of the gang culture that surrounds them? She finds a way out, but it’s not what anyone was expecting…

Little Sweet Thing was the third Eclipse Theatre production and followed the critically acclaimed Moon on a Rainbow Shawl in 2003 and Mother Courage and Her Children in 2004.
