The Snow Goose

The Snow Goose



Contagious Theatre is bringing their beloved hit show - The Snow Goose - to The Fugard Theatre from 9 April until 4 May 2019.

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 who have watched the show.

Excellent discounts are available for students, pensioners, scholars and Friends of the Fugard. Book discounted tickets exclusively via The Fuguard Box Office by calling 021 461 4554.

Please note: Latecomers will not be admitted until a suitable break or interval. Access to The Studio Theatre is via two flights of stairs, if assistance is required kindly enquire at the box office
