★★★★★    Amazing

The Studio at Festival Theatre: Thurs 14-Sat 16 April 2016
Junior review by Cora Dibdin

Niggle is a painter. He is an unsuccessful painter. He is an unsuccessful painter because he has his mind set on only one thing – a picture of a tree.

But he has a journey to make. Will he have time to finish this painting?

The storytelling was really, really good. It was a very calming and relaxing show. There were quite a few conversations and lots and lots of talking.

There was only a small amount of characters. There are some amazing sound affects.

If you use even a tiny amount of your imagination, a picture forms in your head and then, a story starts forming too.

I really really loved it. I would give it 5 stars.
