Baba Yaga

Part of London Literature Festival

A brand new take on an old Russian folktale, guaranteed to give you lots to chew on.

Vaselina lives a quiet life, working as a receptionist in a very tall apartment block.

But all that changes when she is forced to confront a terrifying resident who plays her music far too loudly and eats jelly babies with her mouth open.

Who is this mysterious neighbour? Will she ever turn the music down? And what exactly is she planning for dinner?

The show comes direct from critically acclaimed seasons at the 2018 Edinburgh International Children’s Festival and 2019 Adelaide Festival.

Baba Yaga is co-created by director Rosemary Myers and two celebrated artists from opposite ends of the globe: Scotland’s Shona Reppe (The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean) and Australia’s Christine Johnston (The Kransky Sisters).

A Windmill Theatre Company and Imaginate production.
