One of the most uplifting stories ever written, Michelle Magorian's stunning Goodnight Mister Tom is brought gloriously to life in this stage adaptation by David Wood -- the UK's "National Children's Dramatist" (The Times).
When young William Beech is evacuated from London to escape the blitz of World War II, his life changes forever. Leaving behind an abusive mother, he enters an unfamiliar world in the country. Will’s new host, Widower Tom Oakley has spent the last forty years alone, ever since his wife and son died shortly after child birth. Fate brought Will and Tom together, love kept them together and nothing could ever pull them apart.
Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows sad young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley. All seems perfect until William is devastatingly summoned by his mother back to London.
Goodnight Mister Tom is a tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the sage scale that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers.
