When Hansel and Gretel's father can no longer afford to keep his children, he reluctantly sends them off into the woods. Lost and afraid, they come across a house. But this isn't just any house: the walls are made of gingerbread, the roof is made of sweets, surely this in any child's most perfect and wonderful treat...
Or perhaps not. For whoever lies behind those walls, does not appreciate her house being pecked away. Will Hansel and Gretel fool the witch and manage to get away?
Director of The Cat in the Hat and Beauty and the Beast, Katie Mitchell returns to the National Theatre with her adaptation of a classic fairy tales.
Taking place in the The National Theatre's smallest, but most flexible venue, the Cottesloe, Hansel And Gretel will be staged between the 7th December and 26th January. The enchanting, but eerie production is suitable for 7-10 year olds, with tickets costing between £12-£24.
The performances will be at either 3pm or 6pm, or for school performances, 1.30pm. There will also be access performances over the course of the production:
Captioned - 17th January, 6pm Relaxed (suitable for autistic children) - 19th January, 1.30pm Audio-Described (preceeded by a touch tour at 12pm) - 25th January, 6pm, 26th January, 1.30pm
