Art On the Move

Scamp Theatre (UK)

“The horrors of war and the joyfulness of life are bound up together in this magnificent show” - The Scotsman

Following two hugely successful UK tours and sell-out runs in London’s West End, this riveting adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s award-winning book comes to Lower Hutt's Little Theatre as part of the New Zealand International Arts Festival's Art on the Move programme.

Branded a coward by the country he fights for and condemned to death by firing squad, Private ‘Tommo’ Peaceful waits to die. Before dawn, we’ll learn Tommo’s story: his adventures, tragedies, loves and the injustices that now find him hopelessly confined in a desolate cell.

Multi award-winning author Michael Morpurgo (War Horse) was inspired to write Private Peaceful following a trip to a Belgian war cemetery, where he was shocked by how many young soldiers were court-martialled and shot for cowardice during the First World War. Adapted and directed by Simon Reade, Private Peaceful is a one-man show that leaves an indelible mark on the mind.

Age recommendation: 11+
