Private Peaceful

By Simon Reade    |   Autumn 2012


Private Peaceful tells the story of Private Tommo Peaceful, aged 17, in the blasted landscape that is No Man’s Land, somewhere near Ypres in 1916. Tommo shares his personal journey, leading us through the events that have brought him to this night and this fateful place. Simon Reade’s critically acclaimed adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s brilliant book is loved by people of all ages for its exploration of courage and family loyalties in a senseless conflict. It is a demand for justice, long overdue, to the forgotten victims of man’s inhumanity to man.
