Little Pieces of Gold - showcase for new writing

Category: Theatre

Little Pieces of Gold | Deadline: April 27, 2015

Little Pieces of Gold are seeking six ten minute plays which will be staged at Theatre503 on the 14th & 15th June 2015.  The short plays will accompany the main production of Sarah Hehir’s hard-hitting new play, Child Z.  

Plays should explore a situation where people find themselves in a struggle to be heard by authorities/services/organisations/systems. For instance you might want to pick up on a big news story from the last year - the health service, social housing, youth unemployment, or the issue of free speech itself. Or it could be more personal and domestic. The world is your oyster.  (Plays should not directly address the themes of Child Z.) 

Little Pieces of Gold have produced the plays of over one hundred playwrights at leading London venues. 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.
