About This Show

The Sugar House at the End of the Wilderness is Carla Ching’s fractured adaptation of the Brothers Grimm’s classic fairy tale Hansel and Gretel about today’s constantly shifting notions of family, home, parenthood and children.

Greta and Han have been uprooted from China to Chicago and now find themselves in a tiny East Village apartment with their distant rock journalist uncle. In these close quarters,Greta’s rebelliousness turns dangerous. A play about the treatment and medication of teenage rebellion, children raising children, invented family and shifting notions of home.
