The Man Who Planted Trees

***** 5 Stars

It is always nice to come across a brilliantly told story, and Edinburgh’s festival certainly has plenty to choose from, The Man Who Planted Trees is however head and shoulders above a lot of the shows around for children. It is thoughtful, engaging, and amusing, not to mention brilliantly told. 

This is a touching tale told simply but extremely effectively. The dog puppet is simply wonderful and one of the best that I have ever seen, and takes a commanding role in the show. The cast use an inventive use of props, aroma,music score…and water to fully immerse the audience into this story, and all around you could hear giggles of delight and not just from the children!

This story has sadness, joy, humour and all round heartwarming emotion and I would recommend this to any family as mine and those around us certainly loved every second of it….we may even be there twice!
