Sally Cookson’s Olivier Award nominated production of Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather returns to the West End.

Based on the hugely popular book by one of children’s literature’s best loved authors, Hetty Feather invites audiences to tremble, gasp and quake as the intrepid Hetty embarks on an amazing journey of discovery.

Breaking out of the Foundling Hospital, she must brave the scary streets of Victorian London and face off with the terrifying Matron Stinking Bottomly on her search to find a family to call her own.

The family production features a cast including Holby City’s Phoebe Thomas, who took on the role for its premiere at the Rose Theatre Kingston in 2014 and, later, for its West End transfer at the Vaudeville Theatre.

The production is directed by Cookson, whose innovative take on Cinderella earned an Olivier Award nomination in 2013, and adapted by playwright Emma Reeves (Carrie’s War, Cool Hand Luke) who has previously worked on the long-running CBBC screen adaptation of Wilson’s The Story Of Tracy Beaker.

Packed with live music and exhilarating circus skills, Hetty Feather is suitable for children aged seven and older.
