A Wonder Tale

Let the irrepressible Kneehigh Theatre take you by the hand and lead you into deepest part of the forest! Prepare for a world of darkness, wit and wonder, of earthy delights and crooked shadows. A world that is sweet…. but never sugary.

Times are tough for the family in the wood
They’d eat like kings if they only could

But hunger gnaws - famine stalks the land
Something quite wicked has the upper hand!

Poor mother and father must do “what is best”… 
And Hansel and Gretel will be put to the test!

Armed with their very last slice of bread
Will they eat to survive 
                                      or 
                                             leave 
                                                            a 
                                                                   trail 
                                                                         home 
                                                                                        instead?

This tender, tasty and terrifying new version of the classic story is told through lively music, rough poetry, the most amazing gadgets and gizmos...

For children and brave adults everywhere.

A Kneehigh Theatre and Bristol Old Vic production.
