Hansel and Gretel 
And More Tales From The Forest

4 July to 16 August 2014
Hansel and Gretel And More Tales From The Forest
The Play in the Park, Dukes Theatre in partnership with Williamson Park, Lancaster

Teenage twins, abandoned in the forest, enter a magical, fairytale world where nothing is quite as it seems.  Be prepared to encounter some familiar characters in unexpected circumstances.
 


   “Writer Zosia Wand's strength lies in giving vivid, surprising life to
   well-known fairytale 
characters.”
      Clare Brennan, The Observer.

   “An annual promenade show that's a cut above most picnic theatre.” 
      The Guardian  Pick of the Week.

   

   “Zosia Wand's script is a form of free-association fairy tale remix
   that owes as much to Shrek as to the Brothers Grimm.”
      Alfred Hickling, The Guardian.

   “Skilfully adapted”

   “Wand has ingeniously and artfully interpolated characters and
   elements from a whole host of other fairy tales, creating a
   magical woodland world that sits so naturally amidst the various
   choices of setting in the expansive and varied landscapes of
   Williamson Park.”

   “Zosia Wand's wonderfully imaginative text”
      Michael Nunn, What's On Stage

   "Writer Zosia Wand does not shy away from the darker elements
   of the Hansel & Gretel story but also fills the script with humour
   and fairytale references both children and adults will understand.
   When the characters collide, it feels completely believable that Red
   Riding Hood’s Wolf could be friends with The Frog Princess, or that
   Rumpelstiltskin could find himself accidentally working for the
   Witch.”

   “An enchanting production that captures the imagination of young
   and old alike”
      The Public Reviews.
