Price: FREE


Poster for The Twisted Tale of Hansel and Gretel. A purple background with black outlines of trees and grass, in the foregound that is a book laying on green ground with light and stars busting out of it.

As theatres are forced to close their doors, we are making The Twisted Tale of Hansel and Gretel available to stream online on Saturday 25th April 2020 at 2.30pm on our YouTube channel.

A flustered storyteller is joined by a mischievous Mockingbird 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 Metro-Bolout-Dodo. Co-Produced by Birmingham Hippodrome. Directed by Esther Simpson.
