Puppet State Theatre present

Running time: approximately 65 minutes Suitable for everyone aged 7+ The Man Who Planted Trees is 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, it shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make. This multi-sensory theatre adaptation of Jean Giono’s environmental classic regularly tours festivals around the world. Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit and the best dog puppet ever. Perfect for children and grown-ups. Terrific. The Guardian
