The Class Ceiling archiveTwenty years ago the view that social class no longer mattered was widely held across the political spectrum. Looking across the landscape of Britain today these views look quaint indeed. Motifs of class and inequality proliferate. The familiar pictures of Boris Johnson, George Osborne and David Cameron swaggering at Oxford University's Bullingdon Club symbolise the languid power of a privileged elite. "Poverty porn" has become a staple across the broadcast media. The issue of inequality is perhaps the defining question of our time. (Guardian Oct 2015) Little Pieces of Gold presents seven powerful new plays which respond to iconic texts with issues of social class at their heart. Seven award winning playwrights respond to Faraway and Top Girls by Caryl Churchill, Oleanna by David Mamet, Posh by Laura Wade, Madame Bovary by Flaubert and Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy.
