About this show

Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit, and the best dog puppet ever" (The Guardian) sums up the Puppet State Theatre Company's theatrical adaptation of French novelist Jean Giono's environmental classic. Dog and his quick-witted chum Jean tell the tale of a thoughtful shepherd who plants a forest, acorn by acorn, transforming a barren wasteland. Winner of the Total Theatre Award 2008 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the 2007 Eco Trust's Eco Prize for Creativity, The Man Who Planted Trees is a unique blend of comedy, puppetry and storytelling with sensory effects.
