Private Peaceful

By Michael Morpurgo
Adapted by Simon Reade

Divided by love. United by war.

"I've had nearly eighteen years of yesterdays and tomorrows, and tonight I must remember as many of them as I can. Tonight, more than any other night of my life, I want to feel alive!"

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: 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.

"As moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel..."(The Sunday Herald).
