The Man Who Planted Trees 

Based on Jean Giono’s story of Elzéard Bouffier, a shepherd who one day begins to transform the desolate area in which he lives by single-handedly planting thousands of trees.  Full of comedy, of which the main perpetrator is Dog, an exceptionally cute puppet who clearly has a career awaiting him on the comedy circuit if he can ever get away from ‘the man who always seems to be behind him'.

Why do you think puppetry is so fascinating?

There’s something weird about puppets that are somewhere  between being alive and being dead, and that freaks people out. I think it’s Stanislavski who says the best actor in the world can be on stage but if a cat walks behind him, everybody looks at the  cat, because it’s real.

Aliens Love Underpants 

13 November - 3 December 2018
"Aliens love underpants, in every shape and size;
But there are no underpants in space, so here's a big surprise...."
This zany, hilarious tale by award-winning children's author Claire  Freedman is delightfully brought to life on stage! With stunning  effects, madcap action, original music (and lots of aliens of course!),  this fantastically fresh and funny West End production will delight the  whole family. You'll laugh your pants off!
Parental Advisory: 3 years and above.

Aliens Love Underpants review – one hour of pure, unadulterated silliness 

 Leicester Square Theatre, London  
An adaptation of Claire Freedman and Ben Cort's popular picture book  is like children's TV in theatre form: colourful, loud, energetic and  absurdly upbeat!

The colourful production design,  imaginative set and classy special effects were all fantastic, as were  the lovely detailed puppets that brought the aliens to life. Children of  all ages will lap this up. The cast are all uniformly excellent,  creating the right energy and bouncing off each other effortlessly.

- Mummy Endeavours

The show was lovely. It wasn’t very  long, about an hour in total with no interval and at no point did it  drag or did the kids become restless. In fact, they LOVED it! They were  hypnotised from the start. The story was a vision of  colour and happiness!! I would definitely recommend everyone go and see it if you can.
