"Shiona Morton’s beautifully-crafted new play is a highly recommendable night at the theatre" The Fine Times Recorder

"A thoughtful and deeply moving play" British Theatre Guide

Deep in a Cornish wood, in a remote cottage, elderly hoarder Edith is visited by her daughter Viv for her quarterly sort-out. Among the bickering and debris, tensions rise when Viv discovers Edith’s friendship with a teenage boy, sleeping rough in the woods outside.

Funny, beautiful and poignant, Hansel is an atmospheric story of rural life and family relationships.

Shiona Morton won the 2017 Theatre Fest West Writers’ Prize chosen from hundreds of entries from across the South West. Her other work includes Company of Wolves, an outdoor piece presented at Longleat as part of the 2015 Salisbury International Arts Festival.
