Goodnight Mister Tom a Sellout!

by Michelle Magorian | adapted by David Wood | directed by Tim James | an amateur production by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

Goodnight Mister Tom was performed to packed houses at Beckenham Theatre from 13-18 February 2017. Tickets for the show sold out several weeks before it opened and the production met with widespread acclaim for its sensitive performances and inventive staging.

Now a modern classic, Michelle Magorian’s wonderfully uplifting tale is brought gloriously to life in this magical stage adaptation by David Wood. Set during the dangerous build up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and forges a remarkable and heart warming friendship with the elderly recluse, Tom Oakley. All is perfect until William is suddenly summoned by his mother back to London.
