Event Description

Acclaimed by The Guardian as “Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit and the best dog puppet ever. Perfect for children and grown-ups. Terrific,” The Man Who Planted Trees is a multi-sensory theatrical adaptation of French author Jean Giono’s environmental classic that 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 the difference one man, and his faithful dog, can make to the world. This show is suitable for adults and encouraged for children over seven. It is presented in English with a little French. The company has performed in French at the 2011 Charleville-Mézières World Puppetry Festival and in Montreal in 2012.

Puppet State Theatre Company, based in Edinburgh, was founded by Richard Medrington. After performing his one-man puppet shows for 20 years he joined forces with puppeteer Rick Conte and puppeteer/maker Ailie Cohen in 2006. Their show The Man Who Planted Trees has toured to schools, village halls, theatres and festivals across the UK and Ireland as well as in Malaysia, Bermuda, the Netherlands, USA, Canada and Australia including performances off Broadway at the New Victory Theatre, and at the Sydney Opera House.
