About this deal
For Marinka's grandmother is Baba Yaga, who guides spirits between this world and the next. Marinka longs to change her destiny and sets out to break free from her grandmother's footsteps, but her house has other ideas... Alexander Afanasyev, " The Maiden Tsar", Russian Fairy Tales (1973) Ivan Bilibin, Baba Yaga, illustration in 1911 from "The tale of the three tsar's wonders and of Ivashka, the priest's son" (A. S. Roslavlev)
Admittedly, I have not read Sophie Andersons book, and I now know I want to. With the rich visuals and narrative presented on stage, I can only imagine the book is a cosy but provocative read. Oliver Lansley, adapter and co-director, has achieved a real feat with this production. Teaming with James Seager, the pair have created a beautiful piece of theatre, that asks some interesting questions and starts some important conversations.I really did enjoy this story, although there were certainly moments when Marinka would anger me with her silly choices, but at the same time we must remember that she’s a 12 year old girl having her fate forced upon her, she’s bound to make some poor choices. Despite that, I still felt for her. Some of the side characters may have annoyed me, but it all aided Marika’s growth, so certainly worth it.

Depiction on lubki A lubok of "Iaga Baba" dancing with a bald old man with bagpipes Darüber sollte man sich im Klaren sein - gerade auch für Kinder - dass es hier viel um das Sterben und die Toten geht. Aber auf eine sehr liebevolle, sorgsame Weise, die mich nicht traurig, sondern hoffnungsfroh gemacht hat und für das Alter entsprechend wirklich sehr einfühlsam erzählt ist.
