Precious Jones lives in Harlem with her mother who beats and abuses her. She wants Precious to stay home, eat herself fat and keep the welfare checks coming.

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 classmates, she learns to read and write.

Adapted from the novel by Sapphire and reimagined 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.
