Hansel and Gretel? (A Postmodern Pantomime)

HANSEL AND GRETEL?
(A Postmodern Pantomime)
by Luke R. Francis
directed by Will Mytum
Bill and Toni have just met and fallen head-over-heels for each other. Problem is, they’ve met on stage, and Bill’s been plucked from the audience to play Hansel … with Toni playing her sister Gretel. This is the least of enigmatic director Mal Sixsmith’s troubles, as Simon the Dame demands his role be expanded beyond its paltry fourteen pages.
Featuring musical numbers from Cardi B to Kate Bush, Hansel And Gretel? asks the important questions: what is postmodernism? What is pantomime? Is this really a kid’s show, or just a load of pretentious twaddle?
Honestly? Probably, yes. But there is a rapping dragon, so it’s worth coming just for that.
