Those heading to the West End in September will have the opportunity of seeing two productions based on the work of Michael Morpurgo as Private Peaceful enjoys a run at the Ambassadors Theatre. The production appears at the venue in repertoire with two other productions from the National Youth Theatre – Selfie and London theatre, will surely want to check out another production that was adapted from the pages of his work.
The plot, like that of War Horse, takes audiences back to the First World War where we focus on the character of Private Tommo Peaceful and in the horrific conditions in the trenches he reflects back on his life from his school days in Devon to his father’s death. Ultimately we witness the events that led him to the front line in the first place giving us a profound insight into those in charge of Tommo as well as his views on the ongoing war.
Morpurgo is an acclaimed and admired writer who was the Children’s Laureate from 2003 to 2005 before Jacqueline Wilson took on the title. In addition to War Horse and Private Peaceful, he has also penned the likes of The Butterfly Lion, The Wreck Of The Zanzibar and The Last Wolf, among others. Such works have landed him many awards and nominations throughout his career.
But those wishing to see Private Peaceful at the Ambassadors Theatre, the ongoing home of Stomp, will be able to on performances from Wednesday 17th September 2014.
