Private PeacefulWatch in person at Bristol Old Vic
"I’ve had nearly eighteen years of yesterdays and tomorrows, and tonight I must remember as many of them as I can. Tonight, more than any other night of my life, I want to feel alive!”
Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaits the firing squad at dawn.
Through the night, he recalls his short but joyful past growing up in the countryside; 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.
We are thrilled that the Barn Theatre's acclaimed reimagining of Michael Morpurgo's classic WWI tale returns to the home of the original world premiere, Bristol Old Vic, this October. Don't miss it.
Private Peaceful is a BoxLess Theatre production. It is produced by Jack Maple & Brian Zeilinger-Goode for Take Two Theatricals, and the Barn Theatre (Iwan Lewis, Artistic Director).

How will it work? find all the details on how your visit will work and all the measures we've put in place to keep you safe here.
When shall I arrive? Please arrive at least 40 minutes before the show starts. This is to allow us time to seat everyone in the auditorium safely. We will not be accepting latecomers.
What is the Empty Seat Price? Under current Covid regulations we can only sell 35% of our seats – the rest must remain empty for social distancing. This makes putting on any show financially very challenging. To help us continue putting on these shows, if you can, choose this price option, paying for your seat and the empty one next to you. Thank you. Find out more about our pricing here.
What if the show sells out? With reduced capacity, many of our shows sell out fast. If the show sells out, email our Box Office to be added to the waiting list.
