Best Bits

Beguiling and moving, this award-winning story of Private Peaceful commemorates the 100th year anniversary of the end of World War One and 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.

  • Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year
  • From the incomparable  Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo.
  • Perfect theatre experience for those studying the book or WWI
  • Filled with vivid detail and an engrossing atmosphere
  • A deeply moving account of the First World War
  • A piece of superb storytelling on how precious it is to be alive
  • A theatre treat that will touch viewers of all ages.


‘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

‘An infinitely touching, intensely acted account of a young First World War Soldier’s final day.’ - ★★★★★ Sunday Express 

‘As moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel…’ ★★★★★ The Sunday Herald 

'The horrors of war and the joyfulness of life are bound up together in this magnificent show.' - ★★★★★ The Scotsman
