The fiesty Hetty Feather will soon be at the Vaudeville Theatre
Following a successful run at the Rose Theatre Kingston, Sally Cookson’s highly celebrated production of Hetty Feather is transferring to the Vaudeville Theatre. It will run at the Vaudeville from 5 August to 6 September, 2014.
The renowned children’s author Jacqueline Wilson tells a magical tale of Hetty Feather and the trials and tribulations the feisty youngster experiences as she escapes the Foundling Hospital and its terrifying matron, Stinking Bottomly. The plucky Hetty finds herself in the daunting world of London’s streets in Victorian England as she determinedly continues her quest to find her real family.

In 2011 Emma Reeves was nominated by the Writer’s Guild for Best Children’s Television Script for the popular CBBC production Tracey Beaker Returns.
The stage adaption of Hetty Feather is directed by the Olivier Award nominated Sally Cookson. Cookson boasts a history of great stage credentials, including Stick Man, Peter Pan and We’re Going on a Bear.
Jaqueline Wilson thrilled by the West End transfer
The best-selling author is ecstatic about Hetty Feather coming to the West End.
“I am so thrilled that Hetty Feather has become a stage play! I’ve written exactly one hundred books but Hetty Feather is my number one top favourite,” said the delighted author.
Wilson isn’t the only one to be excited about Hetty’s arrival to London’s theatreland. The stage adaptation has evoked many great reviews.
