Private Tommo Peaceful is going to die tomorrow. A young WWI soldier, Tommo faces the firing squad at dawn and marks the hours by recalling memories from his short but wonderful life, long before the dreadful horrors of war. By Michael Morpurgo, the celebrated author of the Broadway hit War Horse, the moving, funny and heartbreaking one-man play Private Peaceful tours the US for the first time, serving as a timely reminder, now 100 years later, of the heroic sacrifices of WWI veterans. Given impressive 5-star reviews by numerous British newspapers, don't miss this powerful Philadelphia premiere.
