This utterly bewitching toy theatre kit by Benjamin Pollock's Toyshop of Covent Garden, recreates the scary story of Hansel & Gretel, tempted into the Wicked Witch’s beautiful gingerbread house.
Illustrator Clive Hicks-Jenkins’ uniquely expressive painterly style evokes the story’s darker undercurrents, yet is peppered with delicious sweets and candies. This fully playable toy theatre comes complete with a proscenium, stage, six backclothes, two side wings, 14 characters/props and Benjamin Pollock’s Toyshop curtain.
The eerie, somewhat grisly tale is told in an entertaining script written by the artist, accompanied by an additional mini theatre poster for ‘Jury Lane’. The theatre requires cutting and sticking to set up using scissors or a craft knife for maximum precision.
