If you're looking for a Christmas treat in theatreland, something family-friendly that grown ups genuinely enjoy, you can't go far wrong with Goodbye Mr Tom. It's already an award-winner, produced by David Wood. This time it stars David Troughton as old Tom himself. The star of the show, though, is young William Beech, a boy who is evacuated, like thousands of other English children, to safety in the countryside. But William is escaping much more than the Blitz. His mum has always abused him, physically and mentally, and he arrives in Dorset in a terrible state.
William is billeted with Mr Tom, an old, lonely and reclusive man who slowly, steadily brings William back to life with his endless kindness and unconditional love. When the boy's mother decides she wants him back in London and tears the friends apart, they're both devastated. But William is stronger now, thanks to Tom, and he's better able to cope with his situation at home. What's next? Suffice it to say you'll be laughing one minute, weeping the next... but in a good way. It's touching, funny and always heart-warming, a really lovely show for a lovely festive season. Book now!
