He was born on a Thursday. Vegetable soup day.
When Hansel arrives, it upsets the balance of Gretel’s life completely. Her little brother has turned everything upside down. When their parents abandon them in the forest and they end up at the witch’s house, she is very tempted to push him into the oven with their jailer and get rid of him forever...
This version by internationally acclaimed playwright Suzanne Lebeau offers a different take on an old tale. One seen through the eyes of Gretel, stuck with a little brother she’d just as soon leave behind. With compassion and insight and assisted by spectacular design work, the show investigates sibling relationships, capturing the interplay of strong and sometimes contradictory feelings such as love and jealousy.
