Goodnight Mister Tom, a timeless story of duty, community and redemption, opens at the Abbey Theatre in June.

In a story relevant to our times, a young World War Two evacuee finds a welcome in a rural village, far from the dangers of London.

Goodnight Mister Tom tells the story of a young evacuee from London. Escaping a city threatened by bombing, William Beech, who has experienced little love and much fear at the hands of his mother, finds joy in the countryside and brings new purpose to the life of widower Tom Oakley.

Director Tony Bradburn writes, ‘When I was first asked to direct Goodnight Mister Tom, I knew it was a beautiful story, but nothing prepared me for the magic that was created once we started rehearsals. I have a wonderful cast to work with, bringing together Company of Ten stalwarts with enthusiastic newcomers, and the most exciting team of young actors a director could ask for, not to mention Sammy, the puppet dog and the occasional squirrel and hedge sparrow!’


Performances take place on the Abbey Theatre Main Stage from Friday 10–Saturday 18 June at 8:00pm with a matinee on Sunday 12 June at 2:30pm.
