Classic tale brings touching story to life
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 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. “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.
The show will be performed Saturday, September 14, at 2 pm at the New England Youth Theater, 100 Flat Street. Tickets are $8 for children and $12 for adults. To pre-order tickets go to https://www.pinproductionscompany.com.
