This uplifting story is being staged at Bridgnorth’s Theatre on the Steps between 22 June and 1 July.
Set during the dark and dangerous build-up to WW2, the classic tale 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 summoned by his mother back to London. This is a tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age scale, celebrating the value of love and proving that friendship knows no barriers.
