Background


Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, Private Peaceful is by third Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo.


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.


'Private Peaceful at the theatre is a moving experience that not only tells the story of a young soldier's final day in World War One, but perhaps more importantly conveys the strength of human spirit.' - Michael Morpurgo


Synopsis


Commemorating the 100th year anniversary of the end of World War One, Private Peaceful 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.
