MARIA MOREVNA or how prince Ivan got himself a horse, by Ben Haggarty

SAT 1 JULY 2017  11:30am  [BUY TICKETS £5 / £15 per family of 4]

When Ivan meets Maria Morevna warrior princess, he feels like he has a lot of catching up to do…and inadvertently releasing Maria’s arch enemy isn’t a particularly good start.

This is a world where everything happens in threes;  immortal monsters roam;  Baba Yaga is a horse wrangler and where our hero Ivan will prove his worth eventually.

In true Ben Haggarty style, this is a fairytale that’s been well and truly hauled from the grasp of pink princesses and fluffy bunnies. The result is sheer fast-paced fun for absolutely everyone aged 7 and over!
