Based on the classic novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edna Ferber, GIANT spans generations in an epic chronicle of Texas, our Heartbreak Country. Amid a tumultuous culture of big-business greed, racial bigotry, and unyielding family allegiance, a cattleman and ranch heir, his East Coast sophisticate wife, their family and friends as well as their enemies embrace and confront the joys and sorrows that loom as large as the landscape of America's Lone Star State. GIANT is a co-production with Dallas Theater Center.
