Lost in a deep and forbidding forest, Hansel and Gretel fear they will never find their way home to their anxiously-waiting father. If only they had a mobile phone on them!
Joe, who plays Hansel, has a very high opinion of his acting abilities and thinks his future in the film and TV industry looks very bright. Bethany, who plays Gretel, also thinks she is destined for stardom on the stage and both of them are very dismissive of having to perform in this third-rate duologue.
There isn’t a great deal of movement or action required in this duologue, but the trick is to switch between performing as Hansel and Gretel and switching to the two bored actors.
There aren’t many necessary props for this duologue, but a Hansel and Gretel costume is required.
