When Hans and Gret’s mum arrives home from a radical health retreat with the years literally shaved off her, their lives are thrown into chaos.
As parents become teenagers again and kids all over their community start disappearing, the pair are led down a seductive forest path that will see them leave everything they know behind.
Part teenage fever-dream, part dystopian nightmare, Hans and Gret warps reality to epically reinvent a classic fairytale and turn it into a tripped-out psychological thriller pulsing with danger, betrayal, and dread.
Based on an original concept by Rosemary Myers and written by Lally Katz Hans and Gret is an anarchic, knife-edge world premiere that uses immersive audio technology to plunge audiences into a dangerous world of seduction, mind control and candy.
