The Man Who Planted Trees

The Man Who Planted Trees

3rd June 2018


“Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit and the best dog puppet ever. Perfect for children and grown-ups. Terrific.” (The Guardian)

This multi-sensory theatrical adaptation of Jean Giono’s environmental classic tells the inspiring story of a shepherd who plants a forest, acorn by acorn, transforming a barren wasteland. As much a touching 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. Suitable for adults and children over 7.

£2 donation - payable at the door

This event will happen at the Shakespear Youth Club on Shakespear street - near the Children's Wood. The event is part of our wider play day happening on the land from 12-5pm so you can meet at the Children's Wood before 1pm and walk round with us.
