Hear the wind, feel the rain, smell the lavender, and laugh with Dog in this multi-sensory theatrical delight. Based on Jean Giono’s environmental classic novel, this play tells the inspiring story of a French shepherd who sets out with his dog to plant a forest, acorn by acorn, transforming a barren wasteland into beautiful woodland. As much a touching tale as it is a hilarious puppet show, The Man Who Planted Trees shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make in the world.
