A New Vic Production in association with Francesca Millican-Slater & Pippa Frith


written and performed by Francesca Millican-Slater

Weds 15 - Sat 25 July

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.

Francesca is a Birmingham based artist working in theatre, performance and live art.

Last year she premiered The Forensics of a Flat (and other stories) at Birmingham Repertory Theatre along with a national preview tour.She created two brand new work's My Dearest Girls: The Letters Book and My Dearest Girls: Helen's Story based on the letters sent between a group of Shropshire women during WW1. Made in collaboration with Arts Alive and Shropshire Archives, this duo of performances has been touring across Shropshire and will continue to tour nationally until 2018.
