Arts Centre Melbourne presents – The Man Who Planted Trees
Direct from Scotland
This multi-sensory theatrical adaptation of Jean Giono’s environmental classic by Scotland’s Puppet State Theatre Company 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.
The Man Who Planted Trees has toured to schools, village halls, theatres and festivals across the UK and Ireland as well as Malaysia, Bermuda, the Netherlands, USA, Canada and Australia.
London’s Guardian newspaper described the show as: “Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit and the best dog puppet ever. Perfect for children and grown-ups. Terrific.”
