The Selfish Giant is a story about a grumpy old giant who causes the beautiful garden to plunge into eternal winter. Can the children save the garden?
Oscar Wilde's story of The Selfish Giant is one of the most beautiful and moving tales ever written, connecting to people of all cultures. With the opportunity for some children to take part as actors and the whole audience as the chorus singers this is the family theatre at its very best.
Oscar Wilde was an Irish playwright, novelist, poet and an author of numerous short stories and one novel. He was known for his biting wit, and was one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day.
Wilde's story The Selfish Giant is intended to be read by children. It is about a grumpy giant who refuses to let the children play in his beautiful garden. After they are locked out, the trees and flowers refuse to grow and garden plunges into eternal winter. Then one morning, the children sneak back into the garden, bringing with them the joyous rebirth of spring.
