Timeless classic

Taryn Bennett.

Contagious Theatre is bringing The Snow Goose, based on Paul Gallico’s short story, to The Fugard Theatre, from Tuesday April 9 to Saturday May 4. 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 1930s. 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. Tickets range from R140 to R160, and are available from The Fugard box office, at www.thefugard.com or 021 461 4554, with discounts for students, pensioners
