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.

Vicky Ireland's stage adaptation of The Suitcase Kid was first staged at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in 2007.

Seen all over the country, this resourceful dramatisation is suitable for young actors as well as young audiences. Vicky Ireland has provided production notes to indicate how the play can be staged even with minimal resources - plus a lot of ingenuity!

Note to Perfomers: The Suitcase Kid can be produced as a two-act play with songs (with original music by Steven Markwick), and will last about one hour and forty-five minutes. It can also be performed as a one-act play lasting about an hour (suggested cuts are marked in the published text).
