the selfish giant

In a very cold, grey town, not too far from here, hidden behind a crumbling wall and a thousand signs which say ‘KEEP OUT’, lives...The Selfish Giant.
So selfish he shut away garden where the children used to play and cursed the town to never ending winter. Or so the story goes...but one curious child wants to discover what really lies within!


Oscar Wilde’s classic tale is reimagined for the stage in this magical adventure for the whole family.
