About the Show Less...

Private Peaceful is Michael Morpurgo's First World War drama about a solider awaiting the firing squad. Read More >

Private Peaceful has been adapted from the unforgettable book by third Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo by Simon Reade for the stage.

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 was inspired by Michael Morpurgo’s 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.
