Little Pieces of Gold at the Southwark Playhouse- call for submissions

Little Pieces of Gold want your ten minute plays for their next show on Sunday 24th September. It’s an open theme so the world is your oyster just be brave, bold and entertaining.  A shortlist will be drawn up and LPOG’s directing team will select the final line-up. Your plays will then be cast, fully rehearsed and presented at Southwark Playhouse on 24 September.

​How to submit

Send to:

Please ensure that plays are submitted in stage-play format and are for no more than four characters. We do not accept monologues, extracts from full-length plays, adaptations or film scripts. Please do not send more than 2 short plays.  Writers must be UK based.

 A shortlist will be drawn up, and from the shortlist our team of directors will select the final line-up. We read and carefully consider each play but unfortunately limited resources mean we cannot get back to writers or provide feedback unless you have been shortlisted.  We hope you understand.

 All writers will receive an automated ‘thank you’.  If you have a question aside from your submission please put ‘query’ into the subject line of your email and we’ll get back to you.

Deadline: midnight of 25 August

‘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’
