About the show

Please note that this is a socially distanced, COVID-19 secure production. Important information about your booking and visit can be found below.

Michael Morpurgo’s moving war tale, Private Peaceful, transfers to the West End for a limited, socially distanced season this Autumn at the Garrick Theatre.

Adapted by Simon Reade from War Horse author Morpurgo’s book, Private Peaceful follows young Private Tommo Peaceful as he reflects on his life. From his first school days to his first love, Tommo’s story moves across the countryside of his youth to the razed landscape of World War One battlefields.

Private Peaceful was first performed as part of the Barn Theatre’s outdoor season in August 2020. In September it transferred into the Barn Theatre, becoming one of the first professional indoor productions since the national lockdown in March.

Casting features two actors covering many roles. Emily Costello is the first female performer to play Private Tommo in a professional production, and James Demaine joins her as Charlie and others. Innovative staging will mean the two never touch during the show.

Alexander Knott directs with associate direction by Zöe Grain, movement direction and composition by James Demaine, sound design by Harry Smith, and lighting design by Sam Rowcliffe-Tanner.

From brotherly bonds to the horrors of war, Private Peaceful at the Garrick Theatre brings the intimate truths of a soldier into focus. The show’s West End season begins performances on 7 November 2020.

Recommended for

If you found yourself moved by the incredible stage adaptation of Morpurgo’s War Horse, Private Peaceful in the West End will offer the same epic but intimate storytelling. Morpurgo’s story is also appropriate for older children who might want to learn more about the First World War.
