Puppet State Theatre Company's
THE MAN WHO PLANTED TREES
Adapted from Jean Giono's story by Ailie Cohen, Richard Medrington and Rick Conte
Directed by Ailie Cohen


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 in this world. "Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit and the best dog puppet ever. Perfect for children and grown-ups. Terrific!" -The Guardian

Recommended age 7+ / Running Time 65 minutes, no intermission
