The Selfish Giant

The Selfish Giant

adapted from Oscar Wilde by Jon Boustead
Director Paul Burbridge
Designer Anna Gooch

The Giant is angry.  He’s been away visiting friends for seven years and returns to find children – children! – playing happily in his beautiful garden!    

Every day after school, they come and run about, laughing and playing games under the blossom on his peach trees, listening to the delightful songs of the birds.  So he puts up a big wall and an even bigger KEEP OUT notice to put a stop to all that. Then winter seizes the garden in its icy fingers…

Will this grip ever be broken?

Through vivid, interactive story-telling, music, puppetry and humour, Riding Lights brings you this brilliant story of transformation.  No one, not even the story-tellers themselves, can be left unaffected by this inspiring tale of love and generosity.

Riding Lights has an outstanding reputation for bringing memorable shows to family audiences both nationally and in Yorkshire.
