The Edinburgh Fringe























The time has come – the big day. I’m writing this from the middle of a pile of holdalls, rucksacks and wicker baskets. We’re going to Edinburgh and we’re really excited about it. Strange to think that this show has been about 18 months in the making and now we’re finally at the point we’d been working up for all this time. It is quite a crazy malarky.

If you have somehow managed to avoid finding out what our show is about…. allow me to set the scene – with an official synopsis:


John Hunter (1728-1793) is the famous father of modern medicine. Less known is the dubious path he took to fame and fortune: heard about the bribery, the graverobbings, the Irish giant?
Combining storytelling and guitars, We Are Goose are troubadours for our times. Come and discover the macabre world of eighteenth century surgery as they finally unearth the skeletons in Hunter’s closet.

This is the incredible true story of a genuine hero of ours. The remarkable, and slightly bonkers Mr John Hunter. Please come and join us as we perform at the Edinburgh Fringe for your delight.

We’re telling a story with games and songs and puppets and trying to make it feel like a big bananas party. It will be great.

So When are you on?
