In his 15th pantomime at Hackney Empire, Olivier award-winning panto royalty Clive Rowe will direct and star as the Dame, Mother Goose.
The pantomime Mother Goose was first created for another Hackney Empire legend, music hall comedian Dan Leno, who first performed the show in 1902. 120 years on, Hackney presents the mother of all pantomimes in their 120th birthday year.
What would you do if you found a magical goose who lays golden eggs?! That’s exactly what’s in store for Mother Goose, and she soon discovers that this priceless talent isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
