...in the city, there's a skyscraper to the stars, and in the skyscraper there are people. And sometimes, they fall in love, and often they have giant dreams and face giant problems. Then, one day an actual giant - as tall as the skyscraper - shows up in the city and begins to tear it apart. The world premiere of the first two plays of a series, THE GIANTS, PARTS ONE & TWO is a stunning and imaginative excursion into love, death, dreams, stars, and real estate.
