All Your Gold
Written by Miriam Battye, from an idea developed with the People’s Company
Ros is on a quest to remember her value. She organises a living wake for herself and invites the town. Through this unique event the community and those closest to her come together to celebrate one life, in all that it’s worth.
This funny and thought provoking new play promises to be an exciting, bold, theatrical exploration of the value we place on ourselves and each other.
