About the event

Marinka dreams of a normal life, where she can stay somewhere long enough to make friends; but there’s one problem – her house has chicken legs and moves on without warning.

Based on Sophie Anderson’s much-loved novel, the story comes to life with puppets, live music and magic in this co-production from award-winning theatre company Les Enfants Terribles and HOME Manchester.

We follow Marinka, a young girl trying to find her feet when her home is quite literally pulled from under her. The show is packed with fun, exuberant musical numbers, it is funny, thought-provoking and full of life as the Les Enfants Terribles adaptation of the story, deftly navigates the complexities of loss from a whole new perspective.

Book now and experience the magic for yourself!
