Hansel & Gretel

by Ron Nicol published July 2020


Suitable for All Groups

Price: £6.00

A fresh treatment of the Brothers Grimm story written in the authorís inimitable style, with new characters (many of them female) and plotting. The action takes place in or at the edge of the forest, and can be set on an open stage; scenery can be as simple or as elaborate as desired.


Malena tries to lose Hansel and Gretel in the forest, despite the protests of their father Hans, but her first attempt fails. She tries again, engaging incompetent duo Whibley and Wobbley to dispose of the children. Wicked witch Grizella captures them and puts Hansel in a cage. Gretel manages to trick Grizella, and she and Hans escape. Thanks to the help of the friendly forest birds the children eventually return home.
