Watch The Selfish Giant at Home

Rent The Selfish Giant for a week for just £7!

The Giant is angry. He’s been away for a long time and returns to find children – children! – playing 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 its grip ever be broken?

Pericles, Prince of Tyre

 

Shakespeare’s PERICLES, Prince of Tyre

In a stunning, stripped-back version of a rarely performed adventure, Pericles is reborn, full of passion and laced with comedy.  Brilliantly designed, brought to life and shot in an innovative theatre-on-film style born out of the necessities of our times. Catch this astonishing 80 minutes of highly accessible story-telling : Pericles as you’ve never seen it before.

Riding Lights, a York company with a reputation for breathing fresh energy into Shakespeare’s later comedies, has clearly been on a creative voyage themselves to deliver this captivating re-telling.

‘Such a good play – so many strong themes told as a series of intimate human stories. A great achievement.’  York International Shakespeare Festival 2021.
