WHAT’S ON DECEMBER: Mother Goose fae Easterhoose is Platform’s Christmas show

This festive season Platform presents a brand new Christmas show for all the family at The Bridge in Easterhouse. Written by Glasgow-based playwright, director and theatre maker Lewis Hetherington, Mother Goose Fae Easterhoose sees an original take on the classic fairy tale with plenty of local humour.

Hetherington has contributed to Platform’s Christmas programme for a number of years. The show will see 18 performances run between the 10th and 23rd of December 2019.

Happy living a quiet peaceful life, looking after her animal friends, with just enough to get her by, Mother Goose’s world is thrown up in the air when her favourite pet Bruce the goose lays a golden egg. Everything changes… she is rich! What will she do with this new found wealth and fame? Will Mother Goose stay true to her self or will she get lost in a whirlwind of fancy clothes, sports cars and celebrity pals?

Come along to find out, and expect jokes, songs and raucous storytelling. The show is ideal for everyone aged 5 years and over, lasting 70 minutes with no interval. Group bookings are welcomed, and goody bags available in a range of sizes for all ages.

Lewis is a writer, director and theatre maker whose work is rooted in collaboration and storytelling. He has won two Fringe First Awards and an Adelaide Fringe Award. His work has been presented throughout the Scotland and the rest of the world including performances in Australia, China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Germany, USA and Japan amongst others.
