About this show

The Selfish Giant is a classic tale by Oscar Wilde about a giant who builds a wall around his garden to keep out the town's children but, in doing so, plunges his garden into an endless winter. The show's creators, Jose Ignacio Vivero and Susannah Dalton, instill a sense of urgency in the story by placing the storytellers themselves at a border wall. Traveling Depression-era hucksters transform their wares to tell a much-needed story to the audience they find waiting to cross.

The Selfish Giant is funny, touching, and fun for the whole family. It's a celebration of the power of stories!
