Private Peaceful

Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night he looks back at his short but joyful past growing up in rural Devon: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line.

Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, Private Peaceful is by third Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo. His inspiration came from a visit to Ypres where he was shocked to discover how many young soldiers were court-martialled and shot for cowardice during the First World War.

***** ‘Charming, witty, emotional and heart-rending’
British Theatre Guide

**** 'The horrors of war and the joyfulness of life are bound up together in this magnificent show.'
The Scotsman

***** 'An infinitely touching, intensely acted account of a young First World War Soldier’s final day.'
Sunday Express

***** 'As moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel…'
The Sunday Herald

'Morpurgo’s magic, a masterly adaptation by Simon Reade …. This is one hour of your own life you will never forget.'
Daily Mail

'Daniel’s portrayal is unfaltering and utterly compelling.'
The Stage

 

Most suitable for ages 8+
