Baba Yaga

by Christine Johnston, Rosemary Myers and Shona Reppe

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) and Christine Johnston (Australia). Joining Christine in Dublin will be Elizabeth Hay, recently seen at The Ark in Slingsby’s Emil and the Detectives.

Ages 7–12
