The impressive set, designed by Emily James, ingeniously houses the action, despite the expansive years covered over the course of the play.


Emily James’ set is a wonderful cross between a retro super-computer and a ghoulish medical lab.

Grimm Tales//Dukes Theatre annual outdoor promenade production//Director Ian Hastings

Emily James’ designs are delightful: the edible abode in Hansel and Gretel is a caravan of confectionery that emerges spectacularly out of the woods.

The Guardian

Many of the scenes – such as the sweet house in Hansel and Gretel – are a sight to behold thanks to the creative talents of the set designer.

Sitting Pretty//Nuffield Theatre and national tour//Director John Doyle
