The Suitcase Kid

Vicky Ireland from Jacqueline Wilson Price: $12.99

An adaptation for the stage of Jacqueline Wilson's popular novel ...

Ten-year-old Andy used to live happily at Mulberry Cottage with her family - Mum, Dad, and Radish the rabbit, who lives in Andy's pocket and shares all her secrets

But then it all went wrong - Mum went to live with Bill, and Dad went off with Carrie

And Andy is expected to shuttle between the two - living out of a suitcase - and come to terms with her strange new families

This resourceful dramatisation is suitable for young actors as well as young audiences and the adapter has provided production Notes to indicate how the play can be staged even with minimal resources - plus a lot of ingenuity!

The Suitcase Kid can also be produced as a two act play with songs or it can be performed as a one-act play lasting about an hour (suggested cuts are marked in the text)

"A real theatrical treat ... the audience of school parties fell quiet as mice and raptly attentive the second the lights went down" ~ Scarborough Evening News
