Private Peaceful in Chicago


Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Edit

Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo is a timely reminder of the heroic sacrifices that were made by those involved in World War One. The story charts the life of a young soldier, Thomas 'Tommo' Peaceful, a Private played by Shane O'Regan, who faces the firing squad for cowardice. As Tommo sits in his cell waiting for sunrise, he thinks back to some of his fondest memories and reflects on the events that made him the person he is today. Tommo recounts the fact that he and his elder brother Charlie do everything together- such as reminiscing on memories from their schooldays, sleeping and eating, and facing personal problems - they even fell in love with the same girl. But now they have to face the many facets of war together.Directed & adapted by Simon ReadeChicago Tribune - Highly Recommended"...I found Private Peaceful an inestimably moving show, a consequence of the quality of the acting and of its emblematic quality: to their great credit, Reade and ORegan somehow make you see all the real Private Peacefuls, shot at dawn for no good reason at all."
