It's about the childhood story of a boy who was as green as a bud before his face was wrinkled like a tree ring. A small seed that no one know who have planted became a big tree protecting the forest, and always shared a friendship with the boy by rubbing his leaves. As time goes by, the boy leaves the forest and leaves for a city full of cold concrete. The boy, blinded by the gray of the city, is sick of the tree's whispering. Eventually, the boy starts cutting off the branches. The green leaves of the tree fail to overcome the boy's relentless touch, and rough wind waves. Over time, the boy realizes that trees are always there for us. Isn't it because they are just watching us quietly?

 The Key Theatre was founded in 1998 by two artists and specializes in puppet shows for children. They are mainly inspired by fairy tales and nature, and they are creating works that children can think by themselves. With a study of rather underrated children's and puppets, <When All Was Green> won eight awards at international festivals as well as invitations from many countries. Traveling between Israel and abroad, The Key Theatre will visit and perform in Korea first, thanks to its constant efforts to reach children of different cultures.
