I have yet to see a performance as good as Paul Chequers before or since in live theatre. He commanded the attention of every adult and child watching and his performance was faultless. In my humble opinion I feel the show deserves five stars, ten if I was able and every yoff in Britain should be led to see the show by kind parents, or teachers! It’ll sparks debate over war, and every child needs to know what it might be like if they joined the army, or indeed, come to understands what it feel like to be in the middle of a warzone. It is a classless piece of theatre too.
The sense of love we grow for the character, how real Private Peaceful becomes on stage, makes us believe that he is someone we know, or even a part of ourselves, those who watch this play, will be changed by experience, in a good way.
The actions shown by this one man show, are richer that pearls of words strung. Private Peaceful brings all the emotions to the live stage. Youth, understand love and anger, cheating, lying, bulling, fear and control. They understand injustice and the horrors of war and if they don’t understand before, they will by the end of 2hours. I have never seen a better show than ‘Private Peaceful’ It is a masterpiece and is timeless. The whole audience cried, because they learned something not only about the horrors of war but also about themselves. The net result is they will grow up richer for the experience, with a better understanding of the past, which they can then take into their own future. The memory is precious. I think it would help any child do GCSE, ‘O’ Level, in History or English to see this show it will better their understanding of life its great tapestry, past and present. And this show also shows how one person can make a difference. To purchase a ticket for ‘Private Peaceful’ will be money, truly, wisely spent.
