The Selfish Giant
Once upon a time there was the most beautiful garden. A garden where blossom hung from every tree, and the sound of birdsong echoed in every corner. A garden filled with the laughter of children playing, where the gates were always open...
But those days are long since gone.
Now there is a high wall around it, built by a monstrous selfish giant, which keeps out all the children, and a sign promises that ‘Trespassers will be prosecuted’. Now people can barely even remember the garden, or the happiness that it once brought to all who played there... until a brave child dares to rediscover what lies within!
Join us as we climb through the cracks in The Selfish Giant’s wall, and find the beauty that lies within the garden, and us all.
Co-commissioned by Barnsley Civic and ARC Stockton. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
Please note: The performance on Fri 16 Feb at 2.30pm will be a relaxed performance and will also be BSL interpreted. You can find out more about relaxed performances here.
