Puppet Show MAN WHO PLANTED TREES Opens April 10 in Melbourne

Direct from Scotland, The Man Who Planted Trees is a hilarious and heart-warming tale about the difference one man and his dog can make. Returning to Arts Centre Melbourne as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival from Wednesday 10 - Sunday 14 April, The Man Who Planted Trees is a puppet show with side-splitting Punch and Judy-style characters and a strong environmental message from Scotland's Puppet State Theatre Company.

A captivating adaptation of Jean Giono's classic environmental tale L'homme Qui Plantait Des Arbres, this is the story of a shepherd, his dog, and their mission to transform a barren land into a beautiful forest, acorn by acorn. Hear the wind, feel the rain and smell the lavender in this multi-sensory theatrical production. An engaging mix of storytelling, comedy and puppetry, The Man Who Planted Trees is an inspiring show suitable for families and kids aged 7+.

Puppet State Theatre Company, based in Edinburgh, was founded by puppeteer Richard Medrington. After performing his one-man puppet shows for 20 years he joined forces with fellow puppeteer Rick Conte and puppet-maker Ailie Cohen in 2006. Their first collaboration The Man Who Planted Trees has toured to schools, village halls, theatres and festivals across the United Kingdom and Ireland as well as in Malaysia, Bermuda, the Netherlands, USA, Canada and Australia, including performances off Broadway at the iconic New Victory Theatre.
