Based on Jean Giono’s environmental classic, "The Man Who Planted Trees" this unique multi-sensory theatrical adaptation blends comedy and puppetry to tell the inspiring tale of a French shepherd that sets out to plant a forest acorn by acorn. Persevering through war after war, he manages to transform a barren wasteland into a lush and livable paradise. This uplifting and unforgettable story from the Puppet State Theatre of Scotland shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make to the world.

Links to sustainability, European history (WWI & WWII), and French.
