About Goodnight Mister Tom
A play by David Wood from the novel by Michelle Magorian
The Olivier Award Winning Production returns to London!
Live on stage for a strictly limited season
The Olivier award-winning Chichester Festival Theatre production of Goodnight Mister Tom returns to London starring David Troughton (The Archers).
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.
Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and commended for the Carnegie Medal, Goodnight Mister Tom is now a world-wide literary favourite and BAFTA award-winning TV film (starring John Thaw), and continues to inspire audiences and bring generations together.
