TOLKIEN'S LEAF BY NIGGLE

  • TBC
  • Drama
  • 13-17

In 1939, Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord of the Rings to a conclusion. One morning he woke up with the tale of Niggle, a struggling artist on a curious journey, complete in his mind and wrote it down. The story is often seen as an allegory of the writer's own creative process. Surrounded by ladders, bicycles and heirlooms, Richard Medrington (Jean from Puppet State’s The Man Who Planted Trees) recounts Tolkien’s miniature masterpiece, with original score by Karine Polwart and MJ McCarthy.
