About: Hansel and Gretel

This reinvention of Grimm’s classic fairytale is an exciting promenade adventure.

Hansel and Gretel have been abandoned by their cold-hearted stepmother and cowardly father. Deep in the forest and trying to find their way home the children discover the sweetest of houses. Surely no-one would mind if two hungry children had just one little nibble?

As you walk through the wintry world of Hansel and Gretel, you will be taken on a thrilling journey through an eerie forest into a tempting Sweetie House, where someone is waiting for you…

Scotland’s highly acclaimed Catherine Wheels Theatre Company performs at the Barbican
following its success at the 2007 Bank of Scotland Imaginate Festival.

The original version of Hansel and Gretel, Home – East Lothian, produced by the National Theatre of
Scotland, won two 2006 CATS awards – Best Show for Children and Young People, and Best Design.
