The Selfish Giant

Age Restriction: Suitable for ages 8+

The Classic Spring Theatre Company, founded by Dominic Dromgoole and Nica Burns, continues to celebrate the work of Oscar Wilde with this new family show that takes its cues from Oscar Wilde’s short story of the same name.

Mixing some memorable staging and operatic music from a band, The Selfish Giant will provide a unique and awe-inspiring story for younger audiences during its brief appearance in April, introducing the work of Wilde to a new generation of theatregoers.

The story centres on the eponymous giant as he returns from visiting his friend, only to discover that children have been playing in his large and beautiful garden full of peach trees. He puts up a wall to stop them playing there and damns his property to a perpetual winter. If he wants spring to arrive he might have to change his attitude.

The story was first published as part of a short story collection titled The Happy Prince And Other Tales in 1888. Other stories in the collection have already been adapted in various forms and now it is the turn of The Selfish Giant, the third story in the book.

And it is all thanks to composer Guy Chambers, best known for his pop music songs, who has adapted the work for the stage, and director Bill Buckhurst.

The Selfish Giant is at the Vaudeville Theatre from Tuesday 10th April 2018.
