This is a beautiful family theatre show based on the best-selling book by Sophie Anderson.

This brand new production tells the story of a little girl called Marinka. Marinka dreams of having a normal life – where she can stay somewhere long enough to make friends. However, her house has chicken legs and moves around without warning.

The magical folk tale is told through a blend of live music, puppetry and also performance.
