ABOUT THE SHOW

The Snow Goose is a timeless classic based on the Paul Gallico short story. A chance encounter between a recluse and a young girl blossoms as they nurse an injured wild goose back to health in marshes of Essex in the 1930’s. Their idyllic world is turned upside down as the chaos of war intrudes. With the use of masks, ingenious staging and the performance skills of Taryn Bennett and James Cairns, Jenine Collocott has created a theatre gem that has enthralled audiences all over the country.

 
A multi-tissue play, The Snow Goose celebrates writer Paul Gallico and 1940’s values. It’s an immense achievement. ..…. in its succinct simplicity it beautifully straddles being identified as either literature for children or adults. …..This play is a must-see. It will make you cry but it will shift your parameters as to how good theatre in this country can actually be….Don’t miss it
