The Selfish Giant

The Selfish Giant


The Selfish Giant

Inspired by the touching children’s story ‘The Selfish Giant’ by Oscar Wilde, Bristol's two leading
family theatre experts are combining forces to explore an unusual friendship, and how even the
grumpiest giant’s heart can melt when Spring finally comes.


Grinter is a giant. She lives happily alone in her huge cold house, surrounded by her huge snowy
gardens, enclosed by her high, frost-covered walls. She shuts out the world, because long ago, the
world shut her out, and so she hides, safe and quiet in her peaceful, icy home. Outside the towering
walls of her enormous garden, the world has been changing and there is very little green left. One
day, the children - tired of playing on hard roads and grey rooftops - find a chink in the giant's wall and climb through, changing the
course of the children’s and Grinter's lives forever.


Powerful storytelling, captivating puppetry, beautiful design, enchanting music and a sprinkling of
magic sums up this very special show.
