WITH 100 books for children to her name, it’s safe to say Jacqueline Wilson has quite a few fans out there.
Hetty Feather, the latest theatre adaptation of her work, enjoyed a sold—out West End run last summer and was nominated for an Olivier Award.
On Tuesday the Vaudeville Theatre production transferred to the Theatre Royal Windsor — and the good news is there’s still time to catch it before the show closes on Saturday night.
Adapted for the stage by Emma Reeves, the TV screenwriter of Tracy Beaker and Hetty Feather, this circus—themed adventure set in Victorian England is full of laughter, action and brilliant dialogue, and features plenty of aerial acrobatics.
Abandoned by her unmarried mother at the austere Foundling Hospital as a newborn, Hetty Feather must negotiate a tough upbringing with adventure and the heartbreaking sting of broken promises.
Life is tough at the hospital, and throughout her short, hard life, Hetty has known that somewhere out there her true family must exist. Fostered until the age of six, she must return to the grim surroundings of the hospital where she was left as a baby, but not before experiencing the delights of a travelling circus and the tragic consequences of her actions.
Tickets for Hetty Feather range from £14.50 to £29.50, with family tickets available. Call the box office on 01753 853888 or visit www.theatreÂ royalwindsor.co.uk
