The Man Who Planted Trees is coming to Australia:
Melbourne Arts Centre: 20th and 21st November.
Sydney Opera House: 23rd November to 5th December.
The Man Who Planted Trees is a performance of beauty, telling a story of a humble old shepherd, Elzéard Bouffier, who, accompanied by his dog, wants to bring trees back to the desolate valley which is his home.
The Puppet State Theater Company brings this classic French story by Jean Giono to life.
The Man Who Planted Trees is a story of hope and inspiration… Of how normal and rather plain people can do extra ordinary things in normal and rather plain ways. It is simply beautiful and something that greenFish personally recommends.
The story is played out using a delightful combination of puppets and actors. The Puppet State Theater Company has a great knack of keeping both children and adults captivated.
The Man Who Planted Trees is a favorite at the world-renowned Edinburgh Festival.
“An unforgettable story that shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make to the world.”
