Carrie and Nick are war-time evacuees, billeted in Wales to stay with Mr Evans, who's a bit of a bully, and his poor timid sister Aunt Lou. Councilor Evans is mean and overbearing and to escape from their regimented lives, Carrie and Nick find sanctuary at Druids Bottom, where their friend Albert Sandwich is billeted. Here they find true hospitality and friendship with Hepzibah green and the strange Mister Johnny who can talk to animals but not to human beings. Years later Carrie returns to Druids Bottom with her children.

Review:

I doubt that anything will beat this traditional page-to-stage adaptation for ceaselessly involving telling of a cracking story." Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard
