Tudor Players presents
Goodnight Mister Tom
By Michelle Magorian
Tuesday 17th – Saturday 21st October, 7.15pm
Set during the dark and dangerous build-up during the 2nd world war.  Young William Beech is evacuated to the idyllic English countryside and builds a remarkable and moving friendship with elderly recluse Tom Oakley.  A tale of two broken souls at very different ends of the age scale that celebrates the value of love and proves that friendship knows no barriers.
One of the most uplifting stories ever written is brought gloriously to life in this stage adaptation by David Wood.  The play won the Olivier award for Best Entertainment and Family 2013.  ‘…tugs the heart strings … moments of enchanting comedy … splendidly faithful to the book … a big success.’

My Brilliant Divorce
By Geraldine Aron
Saturday 11th November, 2.30pm & 7.30pm
When Angela Lipsky’s husband arrives home from an accountancy conference to announce that he has fallen in love with a Mexican girl, half his age, with next to no English (or pubic hair!), things will never be the same again. There follows a three year roller coaster ride – some of it hilarious, some heartbreakingly sad. Will there be a happy ending? That’s for you to come and find out.
Playing to packed houses in the West End, with both Dawn French and Caroline Quentin taking the lead role, this is your first chance to see this play, here in Sheffield.

By Ron Aldridge
Wednesday 29th November – Saturday 2nd December, 7.30pm (2.30pm Saturday)
