Half Moon presents a Lots of Odds Theatre production
for ages 3-7

A heartfelt story about compassion, community and understanding.

The Goose Who Flew. Photo by Stephen Beeny (1-web-square)“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 is 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 new show offers an age appropriate exploration of the issues facing people who seek safety in a new land.
