An exciting innovation: three of Scotland's top playwrights combine forces on a single play - staged by 7:84 Scotland in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London.
Some people need help. Some people find themselves in a position to help. And others just help themselves. There's Mick, the TV presenter, searching for reconciliation; Carla, who's looking for love; Al, in search of security; teenaged Jo, who'll try anything for a way out; Chris, out of work and in need of respect; James, who's put his faith in Anita; and Anita, who would just like to start all over again. They are all guilty victims of money and love - and the price we are willing to pay for both.
Gilt is the result of an innovative and possibly unique collaboration. Three of Scotland's best writers - Stephen Greenhorn, Rona Munro and Isabel Wright - have worked together on the one play, creating seven characters whose worlds collide and interweave to create a modern mosiac about love and money.
Commissioned by 7:84 Theatre Company, Gilt was first performed at Paisley Arts Centre in October 2003 before touring, including performances at Soho Theatre, London, in November 2003.
