Lucy Kirkwood's adaptation of The Brothers' Grimm's Hansel &amp; Gretel is the next production from the Library Theatre's Young Company, and will be its first collaboration with Cornerhouse's LiveWire.<br /><br />A brother and sister, a trail of breadcrumbs, and an enticing house made of sweets&hellip; This classic story takes a dark twist as Hansel and Gretel try to escape the clutches of a child-eating witch after being abandoned in the woods by their stepmother. Will the pair ever find their way back home or will the witch be triumphant with her terrifying plan?<br /><br />This imaginative and visually stunning interpretation of the classic fairy-tale will feature props, Tim Burton-style puppets, and scenery made by members of Cornerhouse's LiveWire Young People's Programme, who, as are all the performers in the production, are aged between 14-19.
