In a cottage in a wood
A little old lady by the window stood
Saw two children running by
Knocking at her door…
Hansel and Gretel is the deliciously scary story of a tango dancing witch and her irresistible recipe for a gingerbread house. Follow two brave and resourceful children as they take the path deep into the woods, guided by a beautiful white bird. Red Earth’s retelling of one of the most popular and powerful of all fairy tales is atmospheric, funny and free-spirited.
Join us to taste the shivery delights of a classic tale well told. Hansel and Gretel is the perfect play for children who will grow up to be fearless.
