Oscar Wilde’s children’s story
The Selfish Giant, a play about friendship, faith and the power of transformation, comes to life on the BYU stage later this month.
Through the use of puppets and live actors, BYU Theatre presents a unique look at this universal and timeless allegory of Jesus’ love for all of us. The play focuses on a self-centered giant who is at first unwilling to share his beautiful garden with the children who long to play in it but then finds happiness when he at last welcomes the youngsters onto his patch of lovely earth.
