Nearly The Goat

Touring Yorkshire for Christmas 2015


a Christmas play for all the family… and other animals

written by Nigel Forde

Nearly-2015-WEB-posterWhen was the last time a goat was on hoof to save the day? Somewhere between the tinsel and the cabbage leaves, the crackers and the parsnip peelings, comes the remarkable story of Nearly the Goat…

…bending his amazing acting talents to impersonate a host of harassed innkeepers and help George tell a spell-binding Christmas story. To say nothing of the wolf!

Will Nearly in his DIY travelling machine get to Bethlehem before the wolf does? And how can the kings return to Persia without their camel? This night of all nights is heading for a flock of disasters. Well, Nearly. And if it wasn’t for one relentlessly cheerful, extremely interrupting goat butting in…

With an extraordinary range of puppetry skills, Riding Lights bring you the Christmas story in unforgettable style. Hilarious and magical, Nigel Forde’s delightful play has drawn acclaim from both young and old.

NEARLY THE GOAT lasts approximately one hour and is suitable for age 5 and up.

23rd Nov – 23rd Dec 2015
