From the celebrated author of War Horse comes the story of Private Peaceful. Tonight, more than any other night, Private "Tommo" Peaceful must stay awake and remember everything.

Tommo and his elder brother Charlie did everything together. They went to school together, faced their problems together, slept and ate together; they even loved the same girl. Can a bond and loyalty between brothers overcome the brutality of the war trenches and bring them safely home?

The Irish Times Best Actor Nominee, Shane O'Regan, stars as Tommo Peaceful, in this funny, moving, not-to-be missed adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's celebrated novel.
