Gretel and Hansel

Gretel and Hansel

Gretel’s life is turned upside down when her new brother Hansel arrives. He gets all the attention, the cuddles and the kisses and poor Gretel is told to ‘grow up’ and remember that she’s ‘a big girl now’! But Gretel doesn’t want to be big! And she doesn’t want the annoying little brother who’s too small to play.

When Mother and Father take the children to the forest, Gretel has a chance to get rid of the little brother once and for all. But the forest is full of danger and Gretel will have to learn to get along with Hansel if they are both going to survive the adventure.

Based on the well-loved Brothers Grimm classic fairy tale, Gretel and Hansel is a heartfelt, humorous and exciting tale about sibling rivalry, family love, courage and understanding what it means to be a big sister! The two children become both characters and storytellers as they bring audiences on a thrilling and imaginative journey. Gretel and Hansel will help encourage children to work together, appreciate their siblings and understand the importance of family love.

The Truth

The Truth

Focusing on a man caught up in a tangled love affair, Florian Zeller’s The Truth is a hard-hitting examination of friendship, suspicion and deceit. In a new version by Christopher Hampton (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), who also delivered new versions of The Father and The Mother, The Truth is a biting new play that discovers what happens when the truth is finally uncovered. 

Alice and Michel are having an affair. Michel’s wife, Laurence has been asking him difficult questions. Alice’s husband, Paul, is Michel’s best friend. As deceits intertwine, the two couples find themselves lost in a maze of who-told-who-what, where each loving lie seems more necessary and each confession more indiscreet. 

A brilliantly cruel comedy of the hypocrisies which hold society together, Florian Zeller’s The Truth, premiered at the Menier Chocolate Factory, London, in 2016, in association with Theatre Royal Bath Productions. The Truth is “a devious must-see” (The Guardian) you do not want to miss.
