Based on the best-selling novel by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo, Private Peaceful tells the story of Private Tommo Peaceful, who looks back on his Devon upbringing, his romance with childhood sweetheart, Molly and the terrible events that saw him taken from this idyllic setting and into the horrors of war.

This new production of Private Peaceful first opened as part of the Barn Theatre’s first outdoor theatre festival, BarnFest, in August 2020. It then transferred to The Barn Theatre in September, making it one of the first major indoor productions in the UK since the COVID lockdown.

This performance is available as a stream-on-demand service, hosted on the Barn Theatre website. You will need to create an InPlayer account if you don’t have one already. Tickets can be purchased in advance and will be valid for your chosen 24-hour window.

Performed by Emily Costello / James Demaine

Based On The Book By Michael Morpurgo
