Private Peaceful

Wednesday, 3 May 2017 to Saturday, 6 May 2017

“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 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.
