Lucy Kirkwood's adaptation of The Brothers' Grimm's Hansel & Gretel is the next production from the Library Theatre's Young Company, and will be its first collaboration with Cornerhouse's LiveWire.

A brother and sister, a trail of breadcrumbs, and an enticing house made of sweets… 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?

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.
