The Selfish Giant

The classic tale comes to the Youth Theater in Brattleboro this Saturday, Sept. 14 at 2 p.m.

BRATTLEBORO – The Selfish Giant is a classic tale about a giant who builds a wall around his garden to keep out the town’s children but in doing so plunges his garden into an endless winter. The show’s creators, Jose Ignacio Vivero (Ecuador) and Susannah Dalton, instill a sense of urgency in the story by placing the storytellers themselves at a border wall. Traveling, depression-era hucksters, transform their wares to tell a much-needed story to the audience they find waiting to cross.

The Selfish Giant is funny, touching and fun for the whole family. It’s a celebration of the power of stories!

PinProductions is currently celebrating its first decade of creating and producing theater in English and Spanish. PinProductions has, in this time, produced multiple award-winning theater productions, most recently garnering 18 nominations and 4 awards for the Lorca play El Retablillo de Don Cristóbal. PinProduction’s dedication to children’s creative agency is seen in its new theater works for children as well as its bilingual children’s pilot Basura Aventura (Trash Bash).

The Selfish Giant is the recipient of both the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture’s Artist Grant and The Queens Council on the Arts New Works Grant. Saturday, September 14 at 2 p.m.
