The Selfish Giant

The Selfish Giant

Grinter the giant lives alone in her huge cold house, surrounded by her huge snowy gardens, enclosed by her high, frost-covered walls. She shuts out the world, because long ago, the world shut her out, and so she hides, in her peaceful, icy home. Outside, the world has changed and there is very little green left. One day, the children, tired of playing on hard roads and grey rooftops, climb through a chink in the giant's wall, changing the course of their lives forever.

Powerful storytelling, captivating puppetry, beautiful design, enchanting music and a sprinkling of magic sums up this very special show.
