A Review of The Man Who Planted Trees
Iowa Theatre - Monday, October 3, 2016
While there is much understandable excitement surrounding the opening of the new Hancher Auditorium, I’m not sure how many people realize that there is a second performance space in the building. Called Strauss Hall, it’s a little black box theatre space, with around 200 seats which are raked for good viewing. It is in this space that my daughter and I enjoyed The Man Who Planted Trees, a wonderful puppetry theatre experience by the Puppet State Theatre Company of Scotland.
