Presented by CDP Kids

A CDP Production

a play by Maryam Master

based on the bestselling novel by David Walliams

Twelve year old Tom unexpectedly finds himself lonely and lost in the children’s ward of St Crook's Hospital, away from his family and at the mercy of evil Matron. Tom feels like he’ll never leave, but his fellow young patients have other ideas. They might be stuck in hospital, but their imaginations can take them anywhere as The Midnight Gang. Each night when the clock strikes midnight, The Midnight Gang go on a series of amazing journeys as they turn the hospital into the places they’ve always wanted to go and make dreams come true.

“A wonderful story of friendship and not judging a book by its cover.” "Brought tears to the eyes of the parents and grandparents in the audience. Very touching theatre" Stage Whispers

The team behind The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- and 91-Storey Treehouses, Mr Stink and Billionaire Boy bring David Walliams’ bestselling book to life on stage in a celebration of friendship, love and the power of the imagination.
