An adaptation for the stage of this modern children's classic by the best-selling author and 2005 Children's Laureate.

Thirteen-year-old Violet has plenty to wish for. She wishes Will, her older brother, would be kinder to her. She wishes beautiful charismatic Jasmine would be her friend for ever. Most of all she wishes she could meet her favourite author, Casper Dream. Violet is sure that someone who can create the fairy tales she loves so much would be able to conjure up a solution to her problems.

Seen all over the country and in the West End, this resourceful dramatisation of Jacqueline Wilson's Midnight is suitable for young actors as well as young audiences. The adapter, Vicky Ireland, has provided production notes to indicate how the play can be staged even with minimal resources - plus a lot of ingenuity!

'Balances the magical world of the imagination with the harsher realities of growing up in modern Britain... Never shies away from the dark and difficult.'  The Times
Cast : 3 (doubling required)
