Hansel And Gretel

Synopsis:
It's a spooky play, but not excessively frightening. the well realised and atmosphEric locations -which are majestically realised given the tight confines of the stage - might strike fear into young hearts, but the lead characters are bold and fearless, and the adventure becomes less sinister when we're with them.
Dave Pollock, Financial Times

Running on the Cracks

Running on the Cracks
Run. Keep running. You're doing the right thing. Lay low. Head down. Don't look back. Just keep running. And whatever you do, don't tread on the cracks. Leo's world has been turned upside down. Her parents are gone and her bird-loving uncle is getting too close for comfort. She is only sure of one thing, she must get out. In a desperate bid to find the grandparents she never knew, Leo jumps on a train to Glasgow, penniless and stealing food to survive. Will she track down her grandparents, or will her uncle get to her first?

Notes:
Adapted for the stage from the novel by the internationally acclaimed writer Julia Donaldson (the Gruffalo), this is a new, fast moving play about runaways, identity, survival and how friendships can develop in the strangest situations.
