9781854599117: The Lottie Project ((Adaptation))

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

For her history project, Charlie hits on the idea of writing the diary of Lottie, a young Victorian serving girl. When Charlie's mother loses her job as a shop manageress and starts work as a cleaner, Charlie's previously happy and comfortable lifestyle is threatened, and she finds her own hardships and struggles are not so different from Lottie's.

First staged at the Polka Children's Theatre in 1999, this adaptation 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!

From the Back Cover:

Charlie's world is changing -- for the worse. Her new teacher refuses to call her anything but Charlotte. (Blech!) And forces her to sit next to Jamie Edwards, the most revolting, stuck-up, horrible boy in the whole class. (Yuck!) And assigns her a dreary project on the dreary Victorian period. (Ugh!) But clever Charlie isn't so easily beaten. Instead of writing a boring report, she creates a diary for Lottie, a Victorian nurserymaid, and history suddenly comes to life.

Charlie's trouble at home isn't quite so easy to fix. It's always been just her and her mom, but her mom has been acting really weird lately -- wearing makeup and dressing up for no reason. Could it be, is it possible, that Charlie's mother's got a boyfriend? There's only so much change Charlie can handle before she has to take control of her own life the way she's taken charge of Lottie's!

From the Inside Flap:

Jacqueline Wilson is a bestselling author in England, second only to J. K. Rowling.

Charlie's world is changing -- for the worse. Her new teacher refuses to call her anything but Charlotte. (Blech!) And forces her to sit next to Jamie Edwards, the most revolting stuck-up boring boy in the whole class. (Yuck!) And assigns her a project on the boring Victorian period. (Ugh!) But Charlie's dreary research--and her active imagination--leads to some interesting discoveries. Like Lottie . . . a nursemaid whose life in the Victorian era holds some interesting parallels to Charlie's own.
