Goodnight Mr Tom

By Michelle Magorian & David Wood | Directed by Siobhán Hill Elam
A tale of two broken souls that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no bounds.
12th – 30th December 2021 at 7.30pm
Matinees on 12th, 18th, 19th, 24th, 27th and 28th at 2:30pm

The story of Goodnight Mister Tom is set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War and the early years of the war itself. In the autumn of 1939, William Beech, a sad, introverted little boy, is evacuated from his unhappy home in Deptford to the idyllic English countryside in the West Country. He is billeted on an elderly recluse named Tom Oakley and, after a rocky start, a remarkable and moving friendship develops between them. But William’s new happiness is shattered when he’s summoned back to London by his mother…

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Limited.

Welcome to our New Season!

Thanks for visiting the Barn Theatre’s website - It feels really good to welcome you with so much finally going on.
We have already had the first few productions of our new season, and it feels great to be back after such a long dark time. Thanks to all of you who managed to come along - we look forward to welcoming you back in great numbers again soon.
Ten plays in the main auditorium that are designed to give us all some much needed light relief - auditions and rehearsals already underway which are such a relief after so much uncertainty - as well as some really interesting content scheduled for the studio.
This new website is also coming along nicely, so why not take a look around and get used to it.
See you all in December for Goodnight Mr Tom!
