A new take on an old Russian folktale guaranteed to give you lots to chew on…
Vaselina lives the quiet life, safely tucked away on the third floor of a very tall apartment block eating noodles (not spicy) and polishing her beloved spoon collection. But all that changes when she is forced to confront the terrifying Baba Yaga 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?
An uproarious musical journey to the top floor and beyond, Baba Yaga is a brand new take on an old Russian folktale co-created by director Rosemary Myers and two unique and celebrated artists from opposite ends of the globe; Shona Reppe (Scotland) and Christine Johnston (Australia).
Baba Yaga is part of the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival on tour and is supported by the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
