The Selfish Giant

Description
Told through an ensemble of physical storytellers and geared toward young audiences, The Selfish Giant tells the story of a large lovely garden and the children who loved to play there until the return of the giant who owned the land. Outraged to see the children on his land, the giant builds a big wall to keep them out and puts up a notice that reads: TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED. But without the children, the garden falls into perpetual winter and the Selfish Giant finds himself isolated and all alone.

Based on Oscar Wilde’s short story of the same name, The Selfish Giant illustrates the perils of isolation and the negative consequences of selfishness, but it also teaches us that it is never too late for redemption and for love.
