The Peaceful brothers, Tommo and Charlie, have a tough rural childhood facing the death of their father, financial hardship and a cruel landlord

Their fierce loyalty to each other pulls them through, until one day they both fall for the same girl

And then the Great War comes

The play tells the story of a country lad fighting a war he doesn’t understand for people he cannot respect

We join 18-year-old Private Tommo Peaceful in the trenches as he tells us a story of courage, devotion and sibling rivalry on what may be his last night on earth

Private Peaceful was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, won the Red House Children’s Book Award and the Blue Peter Book Award and is acknowledged by Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse and The Butterfly Lion, to be his favourite work
