About: Push

At age twelve Precious has her first child and four years later she has another. Her dad is the father. But Precious wants better for her son.

After being suspended from school Precious joins the ‘Each One Teach One’ alternative school and, inspired by her new teacher and class mates, she learns to read and write.

Adapted from the novel by Sapphire and re-imagined by the ensemble cast, Push is a powerful and disturbing story told by Precious and her classmates, enlivened by humour, joy and 1980s music and dance moves.

Co-directed by Catherine Alexander (Quiconque / Complicite) and Grainne Byrne (Scarlet Theatre). Produced in collaboration with The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, this production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.

Quiconque is committed to producing meaningful and high quality, visual devised work which is accessible to all audiences but particularly to young people. The company aims to work with exceptional young performers, designers and technicians who are at the beginning of their careers: giving them the opportunity to work collaboratively with experienced practitioners.

Scarlet is one of the UK's foremost contemporary theatre companies, that has produced a canon of highly artistic, imaginative work which tours nationally and internationally.


"Imaginative, dextrous and visually inventive. Quiconque are a company of real tangible ability."
The Sunday Herald

"Extraordinary intelligence and compassion (that) permeate in Katarzyna Deszcz's production…A tour de force that brings Chekhov in from the cold"
Time Out Critics’ Choice
