An energetic, fast-moving adaptation for the stage of this modern children’s classic, by the best-selling author and 2005 Children’s Laureate.
Mandy’s been picked on at school for as long as she can remember. That’s why she is delighted when cheeky, daring, full-of-fun Tanya picks her as a friend. Mum isn’t happy – she thinks Tanya’s a ‘bad girl’ and a bad influence. Mandy’s sure Tanya can only get her out of trouble, not into it. But can she?
Vicky Ireland’s stage adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson’s novel Bad Girls was first performed at Polka Theatre, Wimbledon, in 2004.
‘Vicky has adapted a handful of my books for the stage. I hope she works her magic on many more to come!’ Jacqueline Wilson
