An adaptation for the stage of Jacqueline Wilson’s popular novel.
India and Treasure come from very different backgrounds but soon become the best of friends. Together they escape from their problems by writing diaries, inspired by their heroine, Anne Frank. But when secrets start jumping off the page and into real life, Treasure and India find themselves in deep trouble.
First staged at Polka Children’s Theatre in 2008, this adaptation of Secrets 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!
