Puppet State Theatre Company

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 and shows us the different one man (and his dog) can make to the world.

A combination of puppetry, storytelling, choreography, wind that really blows, rain that gets you wet and French countryside scenes that smell like the French countryside.

Suitable for adults and children aged 7+.
