Goodnight Mister Tom
By David Wood
From the classic novel by Michelle Magorian
This Christmas the Olivier award-winning Chichester Festival Theatre production of this much loved children’s classic returns to the West End for a 10 week season from 11 December – 20 February.
Following a hugely successful West End season in 2012/13, this critically acclaimed Chichester Festival Theatre adaptation of Michelle Magorian’s classic novel returns to London for a limited 10 week season. The story is brought beautifully to life in David Wood’s Olivier Award winning stage version. The production will play this Christmas at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
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, played by David Troughton. 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.
Goodnight Mister Tom is adapted for the stage by David Wood OBE, the country’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children. David’s other productions include his Olivier nominated production of The Tiger Who Came For Tea, James and the Giant Peach, Tom’s Midnight Garden and George’s Marvellous Medicine.
