Little Pieces of Gold was established in 2010 by artistic director and producer, Suzette Coon. We set out to discover, nurture and develop new writing from emerging writers and have produced the plays of over one hundred playwrights at theatres such as Theatre503, Park Theatre and Southwark Playhouse. Our showcases garner much industry interest, introduce writers to literary agents and have gained a reputation for facilitating long term creative collaborations and providing a platform for new voices, theatre makers and performers.
'This production is filled with a wonderful variety of wit and humour, clever concepts and poignancy.'

'Little Pieces of Gold really is a little piece of gold - there's no glitter in sight. Its creative director Suzette is supportive and encouraging of new writing and it is a great place to showcase your work. After my short play 'TOILET' was put on at one of the events, I was picked up by a BBC person who then invited me in for meetings and a training course for writing for BBC. I really appreciate LPoG and hope that it goes on shining.'

'It's a great arena to try ideas out you may use in longer work and see what reaction it gets from the audience. I've also met and gone on to work again with directors, writers and actors through LPG. Finally, LPG enables you to show people what you do - it's helped me get longer work produced, get agents interested and get published. You really should write that short play and send it in - from the smallest acorns and all that ... '

'The standard of work is high and the competition stiff so, after a few previous attempts, I was extra delighted when my short play Indignitas was selected by Little Pieces of Gold to be part of Festopia. The tech rehearsals at Theatre 503 were orchestrated with supreme professionalismby LPG's mega-unflappable stage manager Marie Kearney (by comparison the average NASA astronaut would come across as a dithering incompetent). On the night the house was packed, the performances of all the plays was spellbinding, and the audience was buzzing. Little Pieces of Gold offers writers a seriously professional yet exciting and enjoyable opportunity in a creative supportive atmosphere. 24 carats!'
