The bell tolls and Tommo Peaceful is alone with his thoughts.

He dreams of the girl he loves, the home he left behind, and of the brother he would do anything for.

But as the hours tick by, every moment brings him closer to his fate.

Michael Morpurgo’s modern classic Private Peaceful, shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, won the Red House Children’s Book Award and the Blue Peter Book Award. Acknowledged by Morpurgo (War Horse, The Butterfly Lion) as his favourite work, Simon Reade’s adaptation is given dynamic life by BoxLess Theatre.
