Tom’s Midnight Garden
Adapted for the stage by David Wood from the book by Philippa Pearce.
As the old grandfather clock chimes thirteen, a lonely boy creeps down the Victorian staircase. He walks out of the 1950s and into another world, another time and a garden that shouldn’t exist. Are the people there ghosts – or is the boy the ghost?
This beautiful and poignant story introduces the audience to Hatty, an orphan from the 1800s and Tom, a boy from the 1950s. Moving between time periods, Tom meets characters from Hatty’s world and shares in her sorrow, joy and love of life.
Adapted from the award winning novel, this haunting story explores friendship, love and loss, and enduring human spirit. Tom’s Midnight Garden is a magical, enchanting story which will delight audiences young and old.
