Part of Melbourne International Comedy Festival, 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.
A touching tale and hilarious puppet show, The Man Who Planted Trees shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make.
Presented in partnership with Sydney Opera House and Castlemaine State Festival.
Adapted and performed by Richard Medrington and Rick Conte.
Set and puppet design by Ailie Cohen.
