The Pilgrimage

The Red Brick Auditorium, Square Chapel, Halifax

April 2008

Originally commissioned by  the National Theatre Connections as part of its annual support for new  and original writing for young people, The Pilgrimage is a funny,  original and powerful fable about friends and enemies, families and  foes. Set in a fictitious country two tribes, the shepherds and the  goatherds, live in mutual animosity and fear. Only a miracle can break  the cycle of hatred and revenge...

Written by Paul Goetzee.
