The Golden Goose is a fully air-conditioned, 85-seat theatre and is near Oval Tube close to the heart of Camberwell. The theatre was founded by Michael Kingsbury in 2020 and exists as a creative hub for artists to make all kinds of theatrical experiences. Since opening, we have hosted multi-Offie-winning company Out Of The Forest Theatre, Fringe-First winner Chris Larner, and a new horror company featuring new work by Olivier award-winning Morgan Lloyd Malcolm & Abi Zakarian. Chewboy Productions' "DJ Bazzer's Year 6 Disco" won an Offie for its run at the Golden Goose in 2021. Founder Michael Kingsbury was awarded ‘Outstanding Contribution To Pub Theatre’ by London Pub Theatre’s.
We have so far supported R&Ds from Althea Theatre & Clout Theatre and created new work and development opportunities for several emerging artists including Frumpish Theatre’s all-female new writing festival and the development run of The Life of Olu by Temi Majekodunmi (which transferred to Theatre Peckham in 2021). Our inaugural in-house production of A Rat, A Rat by Chloe Yates (shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Playwriting from Paines Plough & Ellie Keel) won a Standing Ovation Award from London Pub Theatres.
We are currently hosting the award-winning People show’s latest production The Diviner’s and a revival of the Critically acclaimed Strangers in Between by Tommy Murphy.
