Private Peaceful' on Saturday 10th - Sunday 11th November 2018
The Exmouth Players (CIO) present “Private Peaceful”, a play by Michael Morpurgo as adapted by Simon Reade, at The Blackmore Theatre on Sat 10th and Sun 11th November 2018, including a Saturday Matinee, directed by Alan Smith. Evening performances are at 7.30pm and the Saturday Matinee starts at 2.30pm.
This presentation is in Commemoration of the Centenary of the End of the First World War.
Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night, he looks back at his short but joyful past growing up in rural Devon: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line.
This amateur production of “Private Peaceful” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD
“The horrors of war and the joyfulness of life are bound up together in this magnificent show” - The Scotsman
“Morpurgo’s magic, a masterly adaptation by Simon Reade.... This is one hour of your own life you will never forget.” - Daily Mail
