About the show: 

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.


The film was recorded live at the Birmingham Hippodrome in February 2020.
