'Private Peaceful at the theatre is a moving experience that not only tells the story of a young soldier's final day in World War One, but perhaps more importantly conveys the strength of human spirit' (Michael Morpurgo). 'The horrors of war and the joyfulness of life are bound up together in this magnificent show' ***** (Scotsman). 'An infinitely touching, intensely acted account of a young First World War soldier's final day' ***** (Sunday Express). 'As moving as the poetry of Wilfred Owen and as painfully memorable as white-hot shrapnel...' ***** (Sunday Herald).
