Wordplay 2009, Shetland Arts annual book festival will feature two performances of the acclaimed puppet show, The Man Who Planted Trees.

The hit show will be performed in Islesburgh Community Centre on both days of the festival.

The Edinburgh based Puppet State Theatre Company are on their first visit to Shetland, just another stop on what they are now calling their “Never Ending Tour” with a hit show that has struck a chord with audiences everywhere they take it, including three years of sell out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The Man Who Planted Trees, is a heart warming adaptation of the book by Jean Giono, a cult classic with a powerful environmental theme. It is suitable for anyone over the age of 7 and has a broad appeal to children and adults alike.

Literature Development Officer, Donald Anderson said, “This is an opportunity not to be missed, for people of all ages in Shetland to see a great show.”

Tickets can be purchased by calling Shetland Box Office, 01595 745 555.
