Baba Yaga

Windmill Theatre Company and Imaginate Productions

By Christine Johnston, Rosemary Myers and Shona Reppe
A new take on an old Russian folktale guaranteed to give you lots to chew on.

Vaselina lives the 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?

Direct from critically acclaimed seasons at the 2018 Edinburgh International Children’s Festival and 2019 Adelaide Festival, 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; The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean) and Christine Johnston (Australia; The Kransky Sisters).

Presented as part of the Big Imaginations Childrens Festival ★★★★★ “A brilliant new version of the alluring old Russian fairytale” THE SCOTSMAN
