    The Man Who Planted Trees
    Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 11AM and 2PM
    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 to the world. Puppet State Theatre Company is based in Edinburgh, specializing in live theatre with puppetry, storytelling and a dash of improvisation.
    The show runs approximately 65 minutes and is suitable for adults and children over 7.
