Hansel & Gretel
  • Brighton Fringe

Once upon a tea time, there lived a very strange witch in the woods. When Hansel and Gretel are worried about their father, they set off to pick strawberries to cheer him up. Soon, distracted by the beauty of the forest and after playing for too long, it gets dark and Hansel and Gretel are lost! Through hunger, hope, cruelty and courage, Hansel and Gretel go on a journey to escape the very strange witch and to find their way home.

engaging and entertaining

Whatsonstage (Brighton Fringe 2012)

No child forgets the story of the witch, the breadcrumb trail and the gingerbread house. An enchanting experience, this new adaptation of the Brothers Grimm tale captures the imagination of children and adults alike. After a sell-out run at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2012, Hansel & Gretel returns with afternoon performances across the first weekend and early May bank holiday, and the spring bank holiday into half term.

moments of pure and simple storytelling and Fairytale magic

Fringe Review (Brighton Fringe 2012)

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
