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

    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.

    Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize and commended for the Carnegie Medal, this brand new production marks the 30th Anniversary of the publication of the novel. Now a world-wide literary favourite and BAFTA award-winning TV film (starring John Thaw), Goodnight Mister Tom continues to inspire audiences and bring generations together.

    ‘This adaptation of Michelle Magorian’s most successful book for children works like a charm’


    ‘Enchanting. At the end, there isn’t a dry eye in the house. This show is going to be a big success – and I wouldn’t mind the Kleenex franchise.’


    ‘It ends as children’s theatre should: adults audibly sniveling and children breathlessly attentive’


    ‘A great evening… Angus Jackson’s wonderfully well staged, powerfully performed, atmospheric production… I’m still sniffling’


    ‘The ever-excellent Oliver Ford Davies turns in a beautifully honed performance… an often moving production and I for one admit to shedding the odd tear’


    ‘Box-office gold…Oliver Ford Davies’s beautifully judged, quietly impressive performance as Tom… The story tugs at the heartstrings’


    ‘Angus Jackson’s fluent, appealing production is led by Oliver Ford Davies, who is a natural as the rumbling but immensely good-hearted Mister Tom’
