Goodnight Mister Tom - West End

Set during the dark and dangerous build up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows sad 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.



After playing to packed houses across the UK, the critically acclaimed Chichester Festival Theatre production comes to London for a limited 9 week season before setting off on a UK tour. Now a modern classic, Michelle Magorian’s wonderfully uplifting tale is brought gloriously to life in a stage adaptation by David Wood, with Olivier Award-winning actor Oliver Ford Davies starring as Mister Tom.



Goodnight Mister Tom won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and was commended for the Carnegie Medal. Now a world-wide literary favourite and BAFTA award-winning TV film (starring John Thaw), it continues to inspire audiences and bring generations together.
