Tom’s Midnight Garden

Tom has been sent to stay with Aunt Gwen and Uncle Alan in their bland flat while his brother recovers from a bout of the measles. There’s nothing to do, and Tom is rather bored until the clock strikes thirteen and he steps out into a whole new world…

Adapted from Philippa Pearce’s novel by David Wood, this first production at the new Unicorn theatre features incidental music by Stephen McNeff.

Tom’s Midnight Garden is suitable for everyone over 8 years old.
