Goodnight Mister Tom

Goodnight Mister Tom


Westgate Street,
Bury St Edmunds,
IP33 1QR


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.
