Hansel & Gretel and the Witch Baba Yaga Iris Theatre, London Until 3 Sep 2017 From £12.60

Event description

Offie-nominated for her production of Much Ado About Nothing last year, Amy Draper returns to St. Paul’s in London to direct a brand new adaptation of one of the Brothers Grimm’s most beloved stories, written by Treasure Island writer and Iris Theatre artistic director Daniel Winder.
Featuring a life-size, edible gingerbread house, this production of Hansel & Gretel and the Witch Baba Yaga follows the famously peckish children as they travel deeper and deeper into a dark, forbidding forest. There, in the shadows, you might glimpse a figure in a red hood chased by a wolf, or a witch’s hut standing tall on chicken legs. All manner of magical beasts lurk in these woods. Promenading round the grounds of St Paul’s Church, this immersive fairy-tale is guaranteed to fright and delight curious children and adventurous adults alike.
