Little Pieces of Gold

Little Pieces of Gold | Deadline: May 5, 2014

Make inspiration happen. Danny Brocklehurst

Little Pieces of Gold seeks 10 min plays on the subject of social media.

Little Pieces of Gold 

To ‘like’ or not to ‘like’? 8 short plays about social media

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Linked-In, Selfies and the rest, Little Pieces of Gold are looking for ten minute plays which say something about your relationship with the social media landscape and how it impacts your life.

Does it have a positive effect on love and friendship or does it simply give us a bad case of FOMO and lead to lack of intimacy? What about work and productivity? Does social media stimulate it or overload us with information, hamper our concentration and distract us from being creative? Has social media given us a voice? Has it made us more politically engaged, promoted democracy and helped to subvert despotic regimes around the world? Or, are its powers limited as armchair revolutionaries, censors and cyberbullies overshadow the good?

Whether you love it, hate it or are somewhere in between, tell us how it’s affected you.

Selected plays will be staged on the 15 & 16th June 2014 at Park Theatre.

Deadline: Monday May 5th 2014
