“I only eat the ones who deserve to be eaten.”
Lisa is given something by her dying mother; something she doesn’t want. Little does she know that learning to accept it might be the only thing that will save her own life.
The Wrong Crowd re-imagine Slavic folklore’s extraordinary, child-eating hag-witch, Baba Yaga. Dark, visually inventive storytelling theatre, fusing live action, puppetry and music.
HERALD ANGEL 2013 AWARD WINNER
Hag follows the Edinburgh Fringe 2011 smash hit, The Girl with the Iron Claws.
