In the Land of Goldova a mysterious egg has sat on the wall for years, with the note that if it falls the King will lose his crown.  The King’s men and the King’s horses protect the egg.  There are several chickens that lay golden eggs, which is the currency of Goldova,  They are cared for by Hetty Hencake and her chickenmaids.  Unfortunately they are not laying at the moment and the exchequer is down to 6 gold eggs.  Underdown the King of the Goblins is demanding 12 gold eggs or the hand of the princess in marriage.  Add to this mix a white witch who can’t fly, a wizard and his witchlet who continually try and tip the egg off the wall and a wandering band of gypsies and you get a great panto story for all!
