Verdant Productions & Pemberley present Private Peaceful
To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the conclusion of World War I, Private Peaceful is a timely reminder of the heroic sacrifices that were made by those involved in the conflict. Following the worldwide success of Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling book, film, and stage play, War Horse, Simon Reade adapted this stage version of Morpurgo’s award-winning book, Private Peaceful.
This riveting one-man play relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young 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. Don’t miss this moving, funny, and heartbreaking play.
