Little Pieces Of Gold
Little Pieces of Gold’s ‘Who are we Now?’ production (plays TBC) will feature short plays that tackle some aspect of our exit from the E.U. For instance, how does it affect a sense of national identity and how significant is that in the context of our personal identity? Or plays might address the politicians’ antics – the jostling and manoeuvring and the resultant battle for a new Labour and Tory leadership. Plays might also probe more deeply into the reasons behind people’s choices, their concerns about their lives and futures.
Little Pieces of Gold is a new writing company that was established in 2010 and since then has produced the work of almost two hundred playwrights. Thousands of writers have submitted their work and our showcases garner much industry interest, introduce writers to literary agents, facilitate long term creative collaborations and provide a platform for new voices, theatre makers and performers.
