In the depth of a Russian winter, what on earth could make frail old Baboushka cross hundreds of miles of snow on foot?
And why is she armed only with a feather duster and a set of Russian dolls?
Perhaps it’s the whispers of revolution, fuelled by Igor the oppressed singer and stablehand. Or is it the birth of a harmless baby, the one that’s got king Herod in a really foul temper. Whatever the reason, the closer Baboushka gets to the end of her mission, the more it seems the only person she can trust is, well, a goose… because not everyone racing to find the baby is bringing gifts.
Goose Chase is a startling reworking of the famous Russian folk story, served up richly spiced with traditional songs and carols. Touring from 19th of November to 23rd of December 2013, Riding Lights tells the tale with a characteristic blend of riotous humour, mystery, and magical glimpses into the heart of the first Christmas.
Goose Chase lasts one hour, and is recommended for age 5 and up.
