ABOUT PRIVATE PEACEFUL

DIRECTED & ADAPTED FOR STAGE by Simon Reade

LIGHTING DESIGN by Anshuman Bhatia

STARRING Shane O’Regan as Private Peaceful

Following on from the worldwide success of Michael Morpurgo’s best selling book, film and stage play War Horse, Simon Reade adapts and directs a stage version of Morpurgo’s award-winning book, Private Peaceful.

Private Peaceful is a timely reminder of the heroic sacrifices that were made by those involved in World War 1. The story charts the life of a young soldier, Tommo Peaceful, a private played by Shane O’Regan, in this new Irish production of the play, who faces the firing squad for cowardice. Shane’s talents have seen him taking the role of Shaggy Callaghan in Conall Morrison’s Borstal Boy and most recently he played the lead role of Mark Renton in Reality:Check Productions critically acclaimed run of the stage adaptation of Trainspotting.

 “Full of warmth as well as grief, conveying vividly how precious it is to be alive…” - The Sunday Times (UK)

"Peerless work of reconnecting us with our past" The Telegraph (UK) ?????

“An infinitely touching, intensely acted account of a young First World War Soldier’s final day”  - Sunday Express (UK)
