Private Peaceful

Date: Wednesday, Oct 21 - Saturday, Oct 24
Venue: Bristol Old Vic

“I’ve had nearly eighteen years of yesterdays and tomorrows, and tonight I must remember as many of them as I can. Tonight, more than any other night of my life, I want to feel alive!”

Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier, awaits the firing squad at dawn.

Through the night, he recalls his short but joyful past growing up in the countryside; 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.
