The Golden Goose is a new 100-seat theatre and is close to the heart of Camberwell, founded by writer/director Michael Kingsbury and led by Artistic Director Georgia Leanne Harris. We opened in October 2020 and exist 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 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.
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 Women's Prize for Playwriting from Panies Plough & Ellie Keel) won a Standing Ovation Award from London Pub Theatres.
The Golden Goose is a supportive, inclusive and approachable space, supporting and showcasing creatives at all stages of their career, from professional debuts to Olivier award winners. As we look to the future, we plan to take root in our community in Camberwell, and reach out to those around us as we develop and grow. The Golden Goose Theatre is a seven-minute walk from Oval tube and well served by buses and boasts a flexible 29 metre stage, high ceilings and a dedicated theatre bar.
