From the creator of Children of the Black Skirt, comes a contemporary tale of Hansel and Gretel. This engrossing new work explores the impact of poverty and violence on children, families and community.
The work is exquisitely poetic and utilises Brechtian techniques, including multiple role-playing, episodic narrative, direct address and rhyming word to tell a powerful story of three kids left in a car. Two physical actors, a simple set and filmic music score conjure up the suburban landscape in this tale of survival and solidarity against the odds.
