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
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.
