Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn.
Tickets from £14.00
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 the third Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, award winning author of War Horse. 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.
Paul Chequers is marvellous
The storyline is quite beautiful and emotional throughout with highs and lows in equal proportion. The whole of the show is focuseed on the main actor, Paul Chequers (although the actors vary). His energy, passion and skill at depicting the scenes with was extremely impressive. He well deserved the standing ovation that he received. An excellent performance.
