Puppeteer pulls all right strings in eco-prize bid

Richard Medrington, from the Puppet State Theatre Company, is one of the four finalists in the established talent category of the Scottish Eco Prize for Creativity.

Medrington was nominated for the puppet play The Man Who Planted Trees – a stage adaptation of Jean Giono’s environmental cult classic. It tells the story of a French shepherd and his dog who persevere to overcome various obstacles and transform the bleak landscape that surrounds them into a rich woodland ecosystem. The play uses a blend of comedy, puppetry, storytelling and multi-sensory effects.

We wish Richard all the best in winning this award.
