GOLD is a brand new work from Francesca Millican-Slater, commissioned and Co-Produced by the New Vic Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent, as part of their Hoard Festival. A festival celebrating and exploring the Staffordshire hoard.
Gold still holds a special power over us. But what has changed in the way we view this precious metal since five kilos were buried in a Staffordshire field over 1,000 years ago?
From the Hoard to gold-plated mobile phones and pawn shops, a sideways look at the metal that cannot be destroyed. A one woman show using story-telling, PowerPoint, lyricism and possibly some classic gold tracks.
This promises to be entertaining, thought-provoking, and quite shiny, gold shiny.
