Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo
Adapted and Directed by Simon Reade
UK TOUR: 5 MARCH – 28 JUNE 2014
“I think the quality of what Scamp do is amazing,” Michael Morpurgo
The celebrated stage production of Michael Morpurgo’s hugely popular children’s story, PRIVATE PEACEFUL, embarks on a UK tour next spring, 5 March – 28 June 2014 … and we have tickets for you to win, plus a DVD of the 2012 film.
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.
In the tour production, the role of Private Tommo Peaceful will be shared by Paul Chequer and Andy Daniel. A film version of the book was released in 2012, now available on DVD, starring Richard Griffiths, Frances de la Tour and Maxine Peake with George MacKay in the title role.
Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, the hugely popular novel PRIVATE PEACEFUL is by the former Children’s Laureate, Michael Morpurgo (also author of War Horse). This production will tour in the centenary year of World War One.
