Missing Pieces is a series of monthly play readings, spread over 6 months, starting in June, showcasing Black British, Caribbean and African work from new writing to classics.
Missing Pieces is about raising the profile of Black work in the South West and enable work usually seen in London to be seen here.
We have a cultural legacy with some of the greatest writers for the stage; names like Alfred Fagon, the Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott and Wole Soyinka. But most writers are unknown or forgotten. Missing Pieces is about knowing a part of our cultural history.

A claustrophobic mother and daughter relationship, a front room constantly cleaned waiting for visitors who never come. Until one day a stranger arrives whose presence threatens to change their lives forever.
Set in a Caribbean household, this comic drama examines what happens when a mother – daughter relationship, based on emotional manipulation is exposed.
Missing Pieces are script in hand performances, bringing you great entertaining plays, with professional actors and directors.
