Private Peaceful
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Powerful one-man show based on the much-loved WWI novel by Michael Morpurgo (War Horse). George Stagnell plays 17-year-old Tommo Peaceful and everyone else he remembers as he looks back on his short but wonderful life: from growing up in rural England with his brother Charlie, falling in love with the same girl, to the terrors the brothers face together in the trenches. Adapted for stage by Simon Reade, the play is a tour de force that moves and mesmerises audiences both young and old. 'Remarkable performance' ***** (York Press).
