Description

An acclaimed adaptation of one of Tolkien’s Tales from the Perilous Realm. Enchanting storytelling for fantasy fans and phobics alike. Niggle is an artist, struggling to complete a curious painting of a tree but plagued by constant interruptions. Directed by Andy Cannon with a soundscape by MJ McCarthy and Karine Polwart, performer Richard Medrington frames Tolkien’s multi-layered story with strange but true tales from the family attic. Watch this high quality recording from 2020 and attend a live Q&A with special guests. 'Absence of orcs can’t spoil this wizard show' **** (Times). 'Exquisite' **** (Scotsman).
