StyleA one-act play with fairly simple set and prop requirements. Read the script to check that the punchline is acceptable to you before using this as a script for children!
SynopsisHansel and Gretel attempt to track down the truth behind the famous Incey Da Wincey conspiracy stories. What did the celebrated web artist know about the 'Narrator' and the 'Index'? Could Nursery Land really just be a series of stories in a book? Can they solve the mystery before they are silenced by sinister forces who want the secret protected forever? A parody of the Da Vinci Code (obviously). (What may be less obvious to American readers is that it is based on a nursery rhyme which, in the UK is 'Incey Wincey Spider', the American version being 'Itsy-Bitsy Spider')

Exposed to comedy, they die in droves and Michael is carted off to prison, charged with murder.
