“Full of warmth as well as grief,
conveying vividly how precious it is to be alive…”
– The Sunday Times (UK)
From Michael Morpurgo, the celebrated author of the international hit War Horse,comes the critically acclaimed production,Private Peaceful.
Private Peaceful is a timely reminder of the heroic sacrifices that were made by those involved in World War One. The story charts the life of a young soldier, Thomas ‘Tommo’ Peaceful, a Private played by O’Regan, who faces the firing squad for cowardice. As Tommo sits in his cell waiting for sunrise, he thinks back to some of his fondest memories and reflects on the events that made him the person he is today. Tommo recounts the fact that he and his elder brother Charlie do everything together- such as reminiscing on memories from their schooldays, sleeping and eating, and facing personal problems – they even fell in love with the same girl. But now they have to face the many facets of war together.
“Heart-warming as well as wrenching.
A timely reminder of the heroic sacrifices” – ★★★★★
