During such turbulent times what happens to our belief in institutions, governments, religions, traditions, ideas, philosophies and people? For this production Little Piece of Gold will be staging plays on the theme of ‘faith’. The English Oxford Dictionary defines faith as: complete trust or confidence in someone or something, or strong a belief in the doctrines of a religion, or a strongly held belief. Plays will address any of the above.
Little Pieces of Gold has produced the work of emerging, established and award winning playwrights. Thousands of writers have submitted their work through their open submission process and productions 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.
