We will produce uplifting, provocative and insightful work that feels relevant today. Small Change‘s rich, poetic exploration of the human condition is the perfect piece to begin our journey.
Set on the east side of Cardiff in the 1950s and 70s, Peter Gill’s poetic masterpiece centres around Gerard, a troubled man at the end of youth, trapped by his past. He relives his vibrant childhood, to try and grasp what made him the person he is.
Celebrated playwright, Peter Gill’s intricate exploration of boyhood, the complex relationships between mothers and sons and the search for truth, is widely regarded as his finest play.
‘It’s not only pictures of the past that invented me, but the literal past. Things happened that couldn’t be changed.’
