Adapted by Martin O'Connor and Nicholas Bone

Sara Maitland's book Gossip from the Forest explores the strong connections between folk tales and forests, and investigates our forest-dwelling roots.

Our adaptation will use live music (particularly traditional/folk) and storytelling to explore the book's themes and we hope to produce it in 2026.

You can read more about the book and the process of adapting it in these blogs by Nicholas Bone.

The development of the project is being supported by the National Theatre of Scotland
