In the Forest Grim
from the Brothers Grimm tales
Full-length. 60-65 minutes
10-60 actors, gender flexible
Hansel and Gretel are lost, and have no choice but to sleep in the forest until morning. But the forest grim is not safe for sleeping children: a dream-collecting witch is on the hunt for nightmares to stock her shelves. As Hansel and Gretel slumber, their dreams come alive, and four of the Grimm brothers' most menacing tales, including "The Robber Bridegroom" and "The Juniper Tree" unfold onstage.

Is this play more appropriate for MS or HS students or do you think it's for adults to perform?
Thanks for your interest! In the Forest Grim has been performed at middle schools and high schools, and at theaters with older students performing for young ones. So it really depends on your group. More high schools than middle schools though. If there is something in the play that might be objectionable, or work better for your group, please let us know and we are happy to ask the author for approval with a change - she is very open and flexible.
