The Man Who Planted Trees


This event has been and gone.

A French Shepherd sets out with his dog to plant a forest and transform a barren wasteland. As war rages across Europe, their young forest comes under threat.

A unique blend of comedy, puppetry and storytelling with sensory effects creating scents, wind and rain. An inspiring and unforgettable story that shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make to the world.

“Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit and the best dog puppet ever. Perfect for children and grown ups. Terrific.” (Guardian).

“Cannot be recommended too highly” (British Theatre Guide)

“It is very, very rare to find something that appeals as effortlessly to adults and children as this
magical show” ***** (Scotsman).
