I don't know a single youngster who isn't a fan of the Hetty Feather novels by Jacqueline Wilson. And the author – famous for tackling real and gritty issues where fairytale endings don't always come true – should be very happy with this production. We watch as Hetty (played brilliantly by Phoebe Thomas) is left orphaned at the Victorian Foundling Hospital, and the audience are soon transported into a world of circus, colour and acrobatics.

The essence of Agatha Christie was well-captured in this timeless production, based around the author’s own adaptation of her much-admired novel. Transported back to 1930's England – an era when discussing murder was not the gentlemanly thing to do – we find ten people stranded together on an island, awaiting a chilling fate which catches up with them one by one.
