More information from organisers:

The Olivier-nominated theatre company Les Enfants Terribles and HOME Manchester will present the London premiere of their highly acclaimed co-production. The House with Chicken Legs has a Christmas holiday run at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Bringing Sophie Anderson’s best-selling novel to life, this critically acclaimed show transports audiences to a world inspired by Baba Yaga through live music, intricate puppetry and projection. The story follows Marinka, a young girl who dreams of a normal life. She can stay somewhere long enough to make friends, but there’s one problem – her house has chicken legs and moves on without warning.  The show is funny, thought-provoking and full of life. It deftly navigates the complexities of loss from a whole new perspective.
