A new staging of a Tolkien mini masterpiece!

Leaf By Niggle

Saturday 23 April, 7.30pm

Surrounded by ladders, bicycles, easels and heirlooms, Richard Medrington tells JRR Tolkien’s poignant story about an artist on a curious journey - with original soundtrack composed by Karine Polwart and Michael John McCarthy. In 1939 Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord of the Rings to a conclusion, but woke up one morning with this story complete in his mind and wrote it down.

Macrobert Young Company presents... Bassett

Thursday 21 April, 7.30pm

Bassett is a new theatre piece performed by Macrobert's very own Young Company - actors aged from 13-18. 

An exhilarating and startling snapshot of a generation who have inherited a world at war. At Wootton Bassett School the supply teacher has done a runner and locked the pupils in their classroom. Dean needs the toilet, Aimee needs a coffee, Amid needs to pray and Leo… well, Leo really, really wants to escape.

How You Gonna Live Your Dash

Based on real life testimonies and featuring beautiful pyrotechnic effects, this epic performance looks at the moment we choose to detonate our own lives, the smokey fall out and how we piece together a new future.

This shattering piece explores the life-altering decisions we make in order to get the most out of our time on earth: giving up a high-flying career, confronting an addiction, dropping it all and moving to a new continent.

Supported by Creative Scotland and Platform.

Suitable for 14+

Poetry, Doric, wild horses & song - Spectretown

Inspired by the bothy ballads of Scotland’s North East, playwright Elspeth Turner (The Idiot at the Wall, 2012) and acclaimed director Matthew Lenton (Vanishing Point) explore the fraying boundaries between past and present in this dark tale of a family's buried secret. Weaving poetry, Doric, and song, this courageous new play deftly wrestles with tradition, power, and the loneliness of modern life.
