Dear Peter, something interesting and out of the ordinary has happened. Last night it was really, really late. All quiet and still. I lay awake as usual and suddenly the old grandfather clock struck 13!”    (Tom, Act I)

It’s the 1950’s and Tom has been sent away in quarantine to stay in his Aunt and Uncle’s old house whilst his brother, Peter, recovers from measles. Bored and resentful, Tom is anxious to return home until, one night when the clock strikes 13, he slips out of bed and opening the garden door steps into a beautiful 1880’s Victorian garden. Excitedly exploring this new world, Tom discovers that he is invisible to its occupants apart from a little girl called Hatty.

A special friendship develops between the pair as they share fun and adventures together in the magical garden.

Next Stage Youth is 25 years old in October. To celebrate its Silver Anniversary the current youth company hope that its staging of Tom’s Midnight Garden will be a memorable 25th Birthday show. We anticipate that the play, staged in the Autumn half-term, will be a sellout for all to enjoy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEXT STAGE YOUTH!
