Laryngitis stops play

Saturday night’s show and several other performances of Hansel & Gretel at the Chiswick Playhouse have had to be cancelled owing to one of the performers going down with laryngitis.

Chiswick Playhouse apologises to anyone who has turned up expecting to see the show, only to find it cancelled, and promises to offer them tickets for another performance.

Those who missed out included at least one of our competition winners. For the record, the meal that the witch offered Hansel and Gretel when they entered her cottage, in the original version of the Grimms fairytale, was pancakes with sugar, apples, and nuts.
