A wonderful, funny and moving story about friendship, trust and a goose! Who is Martha? Martha is a woman . . . Martha lives by the sea . . . Martha lives alone . . . Martha doesn’t need anyone; she is a stubborn, eccentric and highly independent. Who are Martha’s friends? Not her next door neighbour. Not her helpful postman or her secret admirer from across the bay. Then one day she has an unexpected visitor and for Martha life will never be the same again… “The audience of seven-year olds was rapt; the adults were snuffling surreptitiously into their hankies … a quite superb work.” The Scotsman Originally produced to tour schools in Scotland, Martha’s popularity has been so infectious that this production has been performed across Britain and throughout America – including a run on Broadway!
