The Secret Hen House Theatre

The Secret Hen House Theatre is an engrossing debut novel from writer Helen Peters.

This novel, ideally suited to readers aged 10+, has a timeless quality to it. Helen Peter's wonderful narrative - the tone, atmosphere, sense of adventure - evokes fond memories of the novels I devoured when I was younger.

The Secret Hen House Theatre takes place on the farm belonging to Hannah's family. She lives there with her ever distracted Dad who hasn't quite recovered from the death of his wife years ago. His main focus is the farm - he is tirelessly dedicated to its animals, and making ends meet.

Hannah has a talent. She thinks she got it from her mum. Plays. She loves writing them, performing them and directing them. When a locally run competition asks for entries she leaps on the opportunity - with help and encouragement from her friend Lottie.

They set about transforming the old hen house into a wonderful theatre. They face obstacles which test their friendship, and from which Hannah must make some crucial decisions.

The Secret Hen House Theatre encapsulates that wholesome, child centred quality of novels which gave children a strong voice and sense of purpose in an adult dominated world.

A strong plot, wonderful characters and enthralling narrative - My Book Corner highly recommends this novel. You'll love it!

The Farm Beneath The Water is the much anticipated sequel.

The Essentials

Publisher Blurb
Since the death of her mother, Hannah’s family life has been chaotic.

Ignored by their dad, who’s absorbed as much by his grief as by the challenges of running their hopelessly dilapidated farm, Hannah and her brothers and sisters are left to fend for themselves. While the younger kids run riot round the farm, Hannah decides she wants to do something special, something that connects her to her theatre-loving mum. She’s going to write and put on a play in the overgrown hen house she’s found in a remote corner of the farm. Then the farm is threatened with demolition, and Hannah – with her best friend – have to find a way to save it. Perhaps one of the props they’re using in the play is valuable after all…
