“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.
The Barn Theatre’s acclaimed reimagining of Michael Morpurgo’s classic WWI tale returns to the home of its original world premiere, Bristol Old Vic. Don’t miss it.
A BoxLess Theatre production. Produced by Jack Maple & Brian Zeilinger-Goode for Take Two Theatricals, and The Barn Theatre.
