'A show that has legs and deserves to run.'
The Reviews Hub

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 funny, thought-provoking and full of life as it deftly navigates the complexities of loss from a whole new perspective.

Founded in 2001, Les Enfants Terribles (Alice's Adventures Underground, The Trench) is an Olivier-nominated theatre company known for their unique aesthetic and dedicated to putting the audience at the centre of the story.

'A piece packed with fun, exuberant musical numbers, amusingly irreverent performances and inventive theatricality.'
The Guardian

'Magically inventive and involving.'
