Little Miss Burden, a new play written by Matilda Ibini, a graduate of Creative Writing and English Literature BA (Hons) at The Cass, will open at the Bunker Theatre in Southwark this December.

In 2014, she was selected for the BBC Writers Room and her projects have included My White Best Friend And Other Letters Left Unsaid, Bunker Theatre. Choice and Control, Old Vic Theatre and Muscovado, Theatre503 and UK tour. She has a commission with Bush Theatre and has screen projects in development with BBC Films and Wall to Wall Productions.
About Little Miss Burden
They are the coolest, fiercest, most 'super talentedest' girl band ever assembled. Big Sis and Little Sis are waiting for the third member of their trio to arrive. Little Miss is on her way. It just takes her a little bit longer.
At thirteen, Little Miss is given a gift which cannot be returned. It’s a part of her. She has to share her body and life with it. And she needs to find a way for the two of them to get along as they can’t both be Player One.
