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 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.
