Synopsis
 
Editors' note:
Puppet State Theatre Company have won the Eco-Creativity Prize for Established Talent in 2007 for The Man Who Planted Trees.
In 2012, The Man Who Planted Trees was awarded the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts Award for Sustainable Production at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Puppet State Theatre present an adaptation of Jean Giono's story of a French shepherd and his dog who persevere, overcoming various obstacles to transform a barren wasteland into a rich woodland ecosystem by planting thousands of trees over a period of 40 years. The production uses puppetry, storytelling and comedy, with multi-sensory effects of scents, wind and rain.

Performed by Richard Medrington and Rick Conte. Adapted and directed by Ailie Cohen.

The production is for family audiences.

    'Jean Giono's story surely belongs among the most moving and endearing statements of our hope'
    Wendell Berry
Giono (1895 - 1970) wrote in 1957: 'I wrote this story to make people love trees, or more precisely to make people love planting trees. Of all my stories it is one of the ones of which I am most proud. It has never earned me a penny and for that reason it has accomplished the very purpose for which it was written.'

The production has been performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe; the Unicorn Theatre and Southbank, London; throughout the UK and in Ireland and the United States.
