The words Hansel and Gretel are on a spooky background with a picture of a book
Sun 1 Mar - Mon 2 Mar

The Twisted Tale of Hansel and Gretel

A flustered storyteller is joined by a mischievous mocking bird as he follows Hansel and Gretel deep into the forest. All is not what it seems, as the characters start to tell their own version of this peculiar adventure.

Come along and meet the wicked witch and her really rather eccentric chef in this truly imaginative version of Hansel and Gretel. Live music, hilarious performance and a mesmerising design ensures that this play will entertain and amuse the entire family.

Presented by Open Theatre and MBD. Co-produced with Birmingham Hippodrome.

Venue: Studio Theatre
