Goodnight Mr Tom

31 January - 8 February
Goodnight Mr Tom

Adapted for the stage by David Wood
From the book by Michelle Magorian

One of the most uplifting stories ever written and set during the dark and dangerous build up to the Second World War, we follow sad young William Beech as he is evacuated to the idyllic countryside where he builds a moving friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley and his dog Sammy.

A tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age scale, this heart-warming and Olivier Award-winning play celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers.

John Thaw starred in the hugely successful television film version of the story in 1998 which won both a BAFTA and a National Television Award.

Suitable for young and old this inspiring story will send you home with a tear and a smile. Written by award-winning author David Wood, who also wrote the Playhouse 2019 Christmas production of Tom's Midnight Garden, missing this heart-warming show would be a crime.
