“The best Iris Theatre production so far…Beautiful puppets, clever costumes and magical sets”
Offie-nominated for her production of Much Ado About Nothing last year, Amy Draper returns to direct a brand new adaptation of one of the Brothers Grimm’s most beloved stories, written by Treasure Island writer and Iris Theatre artistic director Daniel Winder.
Featuring a life-size, edible gingerbread house, this production follows Hansel and Gretel as they travel deeper and deeper into a dark, forbidding forest. There, in the shadows, you might glimpse a figure in a red hood chased by a wolf, or a witch’s hut standing tall on chicken legs; all manner of magical beasts lurk in these woods.
Promenading round the grounds of St Paul’s Church, this immersive fairytale is guaranteed to fright and delight curious children and adventurous adults alike.

Please note this production is suitable for children aged 8+. Younger children will not be turned away, but their attendance is at parents’ discretion.
