I borrowed two traditional Russian fairytale characters for my story:

The Firebird can be found in the tale The Firebird and also in Prince Ivan.

Baba Yaga - the Russian witch who dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs.

You will find her in the tale Vasilissa the Beautiful or download the story below

I'm very excited that Sleepless Theatre Company are working on a production of 'Masha and the Firebird. I recently went to watch a rehearsal showcase of the 'Water Egg' scene.

The actors and musicians are also using some amazing puppets.

Can't wait for more!

All three appear in the story and are associated with the Egg of Earth
