“If I was a goose, who flew, what would I do? Where would I go? I know, do you?”

Goose loves the summer, playing with his family and friends – swimming on the rivers, flying above the treetops and singing under the gaze of the full moon. When the days start to become colder, Goose knows it will soon be time to fly south for the winter. But, as his journey begins, things are not as they should be. Down below, a border has appeared and there are barbed wire fences and flashing lights.

The Goose Who Flew was a heartfelt story about the importance of compassion, community and understanding. Using charming storytelling, playful puppetry and an assortment of quirky characters – including Goose’s metallic friend Bolty, paper-loving official Whiskers and a feathery jazz singer called Flossy – this delightful show offered an age appropriate exploration of the issues facing people who seek safety in a new land.

The Goose Who Flew was originally created in February/March 2018. A significantly re-worked version containing some elements of this production was premiered on 14 July 2018. This version of The Goose who Flew toured nationally as part of Half Moon Presents.

You can access the script of this play via the British Library’s MPS Modern Playscripts Collection.
