Goodnight Mister Tom

Goodnight Mister Tom

by David Wood. Adapted from the novel by Michelle Magorian

A Bear Pit Theatre Company Production 

Directed by Emily Myerscough

Goodnight Mister Tom is a tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age scale that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers.

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.
