After a cantankerous Giant banishes children from playing in his garden, he experiences the chill of perpetual Winter. When children sneakily return, so does the beauty and joyfulness of Spring, teaching the Giant to open his heart generously in order to enjoy life’s riches.

On Friday 27 May at 1:00pm, The Selfish Giant will hold a Relaxed Performance. Relaxed Performances are perfect for those who may benefit from a relaxed environment. This includes, but is not limited to, those with autism, down syndrome, sensory sensitivities, learning disabilities, as well as those living with anxiety or who have experienced trauma.
