“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. The team of Cairns and Bennett on stage has an impeccable reputation : this is better than anything they’ve done together on stage so far. Don’t miss it” – Robyn Sassen

Adapted from Paul Gallico’s moving novel, this story weaves together themes of compassion, loyalty, prejudice towards people perceived as “not normal”, courage, redemption, and above all pure unsullied love which are as valid today as they were when Gallico wrote his extraordinary novel.

Combining the soaring vision of Director, JENINE COLLCOTT and the prodigious acting talents of JAMES CAIRNS and TARYN BENNETT, “The Snow Goose” is a classic story that has captured the hearts of young and old readers over the past seven decades. On the desolate Essex marshes and against the background of the miracle of Dunkirk, a wounded, storm tossed snow goose brings a young girl, Fritha, and the reclusive cripple Philip Rhayader together.
