Inspired by the many soldiers court-martialled and shot for cowardice during the Great War, this is Simon Reade's rarely performed ensemble version of Morpurgo's award-winning book. This poignant tale explores love, loss, war and courage, and leads to a dramatic and heartbreaking conclusion.
The performance of Private Peaceful on 23rd September is considered as an open Dress Rehearsel.
