Discover the Bond Between Two Brothers During This Eye-Opening Performance

From Michael Morpurgo, the celebrated author of the international hit War Horse, comes the critically acclaimed production, Private Peaceful. Starring Shane O'Regan, his moving story of Tommo Peaceful's life, from growing up in rural England to enlisting to fight in the first World War, comes to Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center.

Private Peaceful is a timely reminder of the heroic sacrifices that were made by those involved in World War One. The story charts the life of a young soldier, Thomas 'Tommo' Peaceful, a Private played by O'Regan. As Tommo sits in his cell waiting for sunrise, he thinks back to some of his fondest memories and reflects on the events that made him the person he is today. Tommo recounts the fact that he and his elder brother Charlie do everything together, but now they must face the many facets of war together.

Can loyalty and a bond between two brothers overcome the brutality of the front lines and bring them safely home? When the lines of heroism and cowardice collide, what can one man or even a brother do to fight the injustices of it all?

Find out during the run of Private Peaceful at the Greenhouse Theater Center through November 11th.
