Dog and the Shepherd from 'The Man Who Planted Trees'

Edinburgh Reporter Radio came face-to-face with a puppet pooch when it visited the Scottish Storytelling Centre to hear about ‘The Man Who Planted Trees’.

The irreverent Dog – who howled at our suggestion that he’s the star of the show – explained that the environmentally-themed play, which is based on a 1953 novel by Jean Giono, was “as much for any parent as any child”.

You can see Puppet State Theatre’s production of ‘The Man Who Planted Trees’ at the Scottish Storytelling Centre until Tuesday 14 August 2012. Tickets cost £9.00. (Concession rate: £7.00.)

Further information – and images from the play – can be found on the Puppet State Theatre website.
