Arts Educational Schools
Louise Gold attended the Arts Educational School (London Branch), from the age of eleven initially of course in the ‘Pupils Department’. Her last two years there were as a student in the ‘Drama Department’. Initially the school was then at 144-145 Piccadilly, it then moved to Golden Lane in the Barbican area; where it made use of The Golden Lane Theatre. It has since moved elsewhere.
It is known that during Ms Gold’s final year at Arts Educational, the Drama Department’s productions were as follows:
Garden District by Tennessee Williams, performed on 4, 5 & 6 February 1974
Donna Rosita by Lorca, performed on 4, 5 & 6 March 1974 – which Louise Gold appeared in
The Miracle Worker by William Gibson, performed on 1, 2 & 3 April 1974 – Which Louise Gold appeared in
Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde, performed on 13, 14 & 15 May 1974 – which Louise Gold appeared in

The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie by Jay Presson Allen from the novel by Muriel Spark, performed on 8, 9 & 10 July 1974. – which Louise Gold appeared in
It does not seem to be known what Ms Gold actually played in of these productions.
During her last year at school, she appeared in Dick Whittington at the Malvern Festival Theatre; a theatre which at that time had some history of employing Arts Ed students on their first jobs.
