THE LOST LEIGH GOOSE ~ 27 Jan (Touring Production)

PERFORMED BY WORLD STORY THEATRE

The Lost Leigh Goose

Every year 4000 Dark Bellied Brent Geese migrate 2500 miles from northern Siberia to the south Essex coast, in search of warmth, mudflats and delicious eelgrass they so love to eat. Wild Story Theatre is spreading the word about this incredible journey and the rare goose that loves Southend, in a magical heartwarming theatre adventure that follows one little lost goose who gets left behind and must make the journey alone. With music, narration and puppetry.

Wild Story Theatre is a new company based in Southend, which aims to produce wild and wonderful local stories about history, folklore and wildlife across Essex. This showing is a work in progress, following which we will work with community groups to further develop the play and gain their creative input. Please come along and support the project.

SUITABLE FOR FAMILIES AND ALL AGES. RUNNING TIME 45 MINS. ALL TICKETS £5.00.

It’s dark, it’s dank, it has a sense of the forbidden, of late-night shebeen, of the secret and the furtive, of a place where the impossible is probable and all fantasy is there for the taking. Place your bets, take your partners, kiss goodbye to the cold world outside and slip into THE PIRANHA LOUNGE – a place where dreams are waiting to come true.

Text by Mark O’Thomas in association with Dende Collective. Based on the stories of the Brazilian magical realist Murilo Rubião.

On the furthest outreaches of the Roman Empire – at the very edge of the known world – rebellion is brewing.

The King of the Iceni has died and his widow Boudica has tried to claim her rightful throne. For her insolence in defying Rome, the queen has been flogged, her daughters have been raped, and they have been banished from their homeland.

But now, Queen Boudica has returned. And this time she has an army; she will have revenge. She will have blood. She will make Rome quake in fear.

Boudica is a brand new ancient history play by Tristan Bernays that tells the story of one of Britain’s most infamous women: a queen, a warrior and a rebel.
