With sell-out performances at the Grahamstown Festival (2013-2016) and limited shows planned for The Savoy Theatre, it is well worth booking your tickets in advance.

Nominated for a number of awards, ‘The Snow Goose’ is a beautiful adaptation of Paul Gallico’s classic novella is set against the background of the miracle of Dunkirk. A wounded snow goose brings a young girl, Frith and the recluse Philip Rhayader together in a moving story of friendship and courage. Told by seasoned theatre makers Jenine Collocott, James Cairns and Taryn Bennett, ‘The Snow Goose’ was nominated for Best Director, Best Play and Best Ensemble at the Naledi Theatre Awards and was nominated for Best Design and Best Puppetry at the Fleur Du Cap Theatre Awards.

The tour encompasses Graaff Reinet, Knysna (part of the Knysna Festival), George, Plettenberg Bay (part of the Kids of Kurland festival) and Port Elizabeth.

It runs for 70 minutes | PG 10 |
