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!
