In a very cold, grey town, not too far from here, hidden behind a crumbling wall and a thousand signs which say ‘KEEP OUT’, lives...The Selfish Giant.

So selfish he shut away garden where the children used to play and cursed the town to never ending winter. Or so the story goes... But one curious child wants to discover what really lies within!

Oscar Wilde’s classic tale is reimagined for the stage in this magical adventure for the whole family by Wrongsemble.

Wrongsemble are a Yorkshire based theatre company famed for creating fantastic family theatre for all ages, packed full of original music, puppetry, magic and adventure. The Selfish Giant promises to be a theatrical treat not to be missed!
