Private Peaceful play

Through a difficult rural childhood the Peaceful brothers, Tommo and Charlie, have to deal with not only the loss of their father but financial difficulties and a harsh landlord. Their extreme loyalty to one another keeps them going until the day that they both develop feelings for the same girl. Then, the Great War arrives.

With WWI raging in the background we journey with young 18-year old Private Tommo Peaceful through the trenches. He takes us on a journey through the memories he holds most dear and we hear his tale of family, friendship, devotion and courage.
