Yeh Shen now on tour


Many people don’t know that the classic children’s story Cinderella first appeared in China as the story of Yeh Shen, over 1,000 years before the first European Cinderella. Yellow Earth is giving everyone a chance to experience this delightful tale in our latest production now touring the UK.


Yeh Shen is a beautiful and enchanting tale of how a young orphaned girl manages to go to a new year party despite her nasty stepmother and sister. And of course there is a lost shoe. But this version also features a magical fish, a dragon and a horse. Come and find out how they help her. And what happens to that shoe! Full details here

The reviews are coming in:
"funny, gripping and fresh even if you think you know the story already...This is superior, sophisticated children’s theatre with a light touch and plenty of good gags"
★★★★ The Londonist

“Yeh Shen really does have it all… terrific script, talented ensemble, sumptuous and sparkly design, exquisite puppets.. this a truly beautiful production.” Children’s Theatre Reviews

“Unlike many children’s shows, Yeh Shen had plenty of laughs for the adults too, a beautiful performance for the whole family” A Younger Theatre

Clear storytelling, accomplished acting and plenty of charm The Stage
