Established in 2010 by Suzette Coon, Little Pieces of Gold and has staged the plays of over 400 emerging, established and award winning writers and collaborated with as many directors and even more performers at leading London venues such as Southwark Playhouse, Park Theatre, Old Red Lion and Theatre 503. Thousands of writers have submitted their work through our open submission process and productions garner much industry interest, introduce writers to literary agents and facilitate long term creative collaborations.
'Little Pieces of Gold is an event to add to the calendar.'
Once A Week Theatre
'Those without the money for prestigious drama schools or the access to contacts are at a disadvantage, which means the range of voices allowed to emerge are limited and rare talent can go under the radar. That’s why Little Pieces of Gold is such a reassuring venture'
'Performed by a wonderfully diverse cast, Little Pieces of Gold showcased nine plays in a single evening, each with a slight taste of dark comedy'
Scatter of Opinion
'This production is filled with a wonderful variety of wit and humour, clever concepts and poignancy.'
As a theatre journalist and editor; as a champion of the Off West End and fringe theatre scene; as a theatregoer constantly blown away by new writers and the potential that the next generation of theatre maker has to offer, I draw so much strength and energy from seeing kernels of work in these kinds of evenings.
'LPOG really is a little piece of gold - there's no glitter in sight. It's a great place to showcase your work'
Atiha Sen Gupta, playwright
'Events like LPOG are crucial in supporting those who want to write for the stage - long may they continue'
Fiona Doyle, playwright
'Doing "Slingshot" at Little Pieces of Gold was a great experience for me. Not just an opportunity to try something different from my usual work, but to do so knowing that Suzette would give me the time and care to make that experiment worthwhile'
Vinay Patel, playwright
'I was lucky enough to take part in two Little Pieces of Gold nights, both of which had a huge effect on my career. The first at The Southwark Playhouse led to me being spotted by the woman who would eventually become my literary agent, while the second at The Park Theatre led to a week run of my collected short plays being produced. It's a fantastic opportunity to get your work out there and to learn what sort of writer you are, working with talented people in fantastic venue'
James Fritz, playwright
'I was signed by an agent who saw my piece ‘Do You Pray?’ at LPG. Suzette has curated a great platform for new work and really helps to bridge the gap between writers and industry professionals.'
Yasmin Joseph, playwright
