by Edna Ferber
Adapted and Directed by Myra Platt

A sprawling epic of the great state of Texas by Pulitzer Prize winner, Edna Ferber. In this larger-than-life multi-cultural tale, Ferber chronicles the life and times of cattleman “Bick” Benedict and his lovely Viginia-born wife, Leslie, as they struggle to balance their love for each other with their disparate belief systems. A sensational story of love and politics, oil and cattle, compassion and corruption, Giant serves up a thick slice of true Americana.
