REVIEW: Goodnight Mister Tom at MK Theatre

Goodnight Mister Tom

Goodnight Mister Tom at MK Theatre

This award-winning production is a proper family show with real emotional depth. Mister Tom, wonderfully played by David Troughton, is a widower who lives in a Dorset village, and who is somewhat of a recluse since his wife has died. Suddenly, at the beginning of the Second World War, his life is turned a little on its head with the arrival of William Beech, an evacuee from London who comes to stay with Mister Tom. The performance really shows how Mister Tom is reawakened in every sense by young William, and his protective, father-like feelings for William Beech slowly develop. This old man who has shut himself off from the world slowly comes to life again.

This cleverly produced production is packed full with cheerful humour and nostalgia for times gone by. Young William was tenderly played by Joe Reynolds and touched at the heartstrings. Zach played by Sonny Kirby provided the laughs. But the most endearing star was Sammy the border collie ably assisted by the talented Elisa De Grey. You`ll see what I mean!

This is an excellent play to take the family to, but be sure to have your tissues at the ready as you`re going to need them!

Goodnight Mister Tom is running from Tuesday 1st – Saturday 5th March
