Goodnight Mister Tom

Audio-described performance Drama and comedy Touch tour

Audio described in-house.

A tale of heart-breaking loss and remarkable friendship forged in a world at war.

The Second World War has just broken out and the life of Tom Oakley, an old man in the country, is about to change for the better. Having lived alone for 40 years he reluctantly takes under his wing ten-year-old William, an evacuee from London. As William begins to soften Tom’s seemingly hardened exterior, an unspoken and unbreakable bond is formed.

Set against a background of World War Two songs, Roy Hudd leads the lineup of professional actors who will star alongside Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds Summer School in this hauntingly beautiful adaptation of Michelle Magorian’s Goodnight Mister Tom.
