    Philadelphia Premiere

    Written by Michael Morpurgo

    Adapted and directed by Simon Reade

    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 the celebrated author of the Broadway hit War Horse, this moving, funny and heart-breaking one-man play tours the U.S. 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.
