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.
It is directed by Simon Reade, designed by Bill Talbot , sound by Jason Barnes.
The National Theatre is presenting Private Peaceful a Scamp Theatre production in association with Poonamallee Productions, by arrangement with the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
