Times are tough for the family in the wood
They'd eat like kings if they only could
But hunger gnaws – famine stalks the land
Something quite wicked has the upper hand!
Poor mother and father must do “what is best”…
And Hansel and Gretel will be put to the test!
Armed with their very last slice of bread
Will they eat to survive
This version of Hansel & Gretel has been specially prepared for those studying the play for GCSE Drama. It features notes for teachers and students by Anthony Banks, theatre director and former Associate Director for National Theatre Learning.
