Yana and the Yeti at The Met

Yana and the Yeti at The Met, Bury, Manchester 17 February 2018 Tickets from £8.00 — Book now

Lucky for us that internationally renowned puppetry legends Pickled Image bring their latest show to The Met this half term after a recent sell-out run of shows down south.

Written by Olivier-nominated Hattie Naylor and aimed at ages five and above, we are promised a hauntingly beautiful Nordic wonderland and memorable tale of the most special kind of friendship.

Yana arrives alone in a remote snowy village, surrounded by dense forest, where she doesn’t speak the language and is shunned by the local children.  Lost in the forest, she meets a Yeti baby and they form a heart-warming friendship.

Expect marvelous music and stunning set design which cleverly plays with a sense of scale – incorporating bird’s-eye views together with detailed, up-close extraordinary puppets.

A beautiful adventure tale of being an outsider (with all the topical nods to personal experiences of immigration), and finding happiness through putting aside initial preconceptions (fear of a scary Yeti!).

Ultimately too, Yana and the Yeti celebrates the inner strength of being determined to be understood.
