22nd to 24th November 2018

Known to many as a favourite book or television adaptation our November production is the perfect family show for all ages.


Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War, “Goodnight Mister Tom” follows sad young William Beech, who is evacuated from London to the West Country and builds a remarkable and moving friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley. All seems to be perfect until William is devastatingly summoned back to London.


It is the 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.
