4 Reviews

Jacqueline Wilson's hugely popular book, DOUBLE ACT, told the story of identical twins Ruby and Garnet - fun, sparky, extremely close but incredibly different. A constant favourite with readers, their tale has now been adapted for the stage by hugely experienced children's theatre director, Vicky Ireland, and a sell-out UK tour was seen and loved by thousands of children.

Suitable for use by casts with as few as 6 or as many as 30 members, and offering staging opportunities from the simplest to the most sophisticated designs, this script will be eagerly seized upon by English and Drama teachers, youth workers, theatre groups, or even families who'd like to try putting on their own performance at home - and many others.
