Overview

Philippa Pearce's 1950s classic is here brilliantly adapted for the stage by David Wood. Quarantined in his aunt's and uncle's stuffy flat, Tom is restless and bored. Intrigued by a grandfather clock, Tom is startled one night to hear it strike 13! Slipping out of bed he goes to what in his time is a concrete backyard, only to discover a beautiful 1880s Victorian garden where he meets the unhappy orphan, Hatty.
