More information from organisers:

The boy’s name was Hansel. The girl’s name was Gretel.

The dad was a woodcutter. The mum was a bread maker.

In the rubble of their war-torn village, the woodcutting dad and the breadmaking mum decide that the only chance they have to give their children a safer life is to lead them – and leave them – in the woods. Left to fend for themselves, Hansel and Gretel’s plans to find their way home get side-tracked, quite literally, by a trail of treats too good to resist and a strange old lady with a plan of her own.

Filled with music, magic, songs and a sprinkling of hope, the stage premiere Hansel and Gretel is a new production of Simon Armitage’s poem, directed by Nick Bagnall (Love’s Labour’s Lost, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Globe), is the perfect treat for the whole family.
