Whitby Amaterur Dramatic Society is bringing Goodnight Mr Tom to the stage this week.
Goodnight Mister Tom is a tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age scale that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers.
Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to the Second World War, Goodnight Mister Tom follows sad young William Beech, who is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving friendship with the elderly recluse Tom Oakley.
All seems perfect until William is devastatingly summoned by his mother back to London.
The book was made into a TV film starring the late John Thaw as Mr Tom
It is directed by: Katrina Stead.
