The Olivier Award nominated Rose Theatre Kingston production of Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather is currently on a major national tour following a sell-out West End season at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London. The tour is due to visit the Theatre Royal Nottingham from Wednesday 3 to Sunday 7 February 2016.


Sally Cookson directs a cast including Phoebe Thomas who reprises her role as Hetty Feather. Joining Thomas will be Matt Costain (Jem/Matron Bottomly), Sarah Goddard (Peg/Ida), Nik Howden (Saul), Mark Kane (Gideon) and Nikki Warwick (Madame Adeline). Musicians Seamas H. Carey and Luke Potter complete the company. Hetty Feather is thrillingly brought to life on stage with circus skills and aerial artistry, original songs and live music by Benji Bower.

Wilson’s new Hetty Feather novel Little Stars is launched on 10 October 2015.
