A French Shepherd sets out with his dog to plant a forest and transform a barren wasteland. As war rages across Europe, their young forest comes under threat.
This multi-sensory theatrical adaptation of Jean Giono’s environmental classic is a unique blend of comedy, puppetry and storytelling with sensory effects creating scents, wind and rain. As much an inspiring and unforgettable tale as it is a hilarious puppet show, THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make to the world.
This multi award-winning adaptation by Puppet State Theatre Company has been touring since 2006 to schools, village halls, theatres and festivals across the UK and Ireland and internationally to Malaysia, Bermuda, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia including performances off Broadway at the New Victory Theatre and repeat visits to the Sydney Opera House and New York’s Lincoln Center Institute. Suitable for adults and children aged 7+.
