Private Peaceful marks WW1 Centenary in Glasgow

To mark the centenary of World War 1, the celebrated stage production of Michael Morpurgo’s hugely popular children’s story, Private Peaceful, takes to the stage, presented by Scamp Theatre, at theTheatre Royal Glasgow from Wednesday 25 until Saturday 28 June 2014.
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.
In this one-man show, the role of Private Tommo Peaceful will be played byPaul Chequer. Paul starred in the original production of Private Peaceful the Bristol Old Vic, then at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, a run at the Soho Theatre and, most recently, at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2012. At this last run, presented by the Royal National Theatre, he shared the role with Mark Quartley and they were jointly nominated for Best Solo Performance at the Awards.
Private Peaceful is suitable for ages 8+.
