JRR Tolkien’s Leaf by Niggle

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 including Shaun Gunner, Chair of the Tolkien Society.
