AT LEEDS CENTRAL LIBRARY
There’s magic and mayhem at Leeds Central Library this week, as a new festive show for all the family opens in Room 700. Local theatre company Wrongsemble will bring Hansel & Gretel to life in the library from 7 December, with live music, performed on a bespoke set built specially for the space.
Wrongsemble have reworked the traditional fairy-tale for a modern family audience and the plot is bursting with mischievous twists and turns. Meet three quirky characters who find themselves snowed in at Leeds Central Library on a cold winter’s night, ready to share three very different versions of the tale.
The company is returning with the new show after last year’s sell-out The Princess and the Sprout, and the festive production is supported by Arts Council England. Directed by Wrongsemble’s Artistic Director Elvi Piper and designed by Antony Jones, the play is full of northern creative magic.
Hansel & Gretel runs until 5 January 2020
