A stunning adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's elegaic novel of the First World War.
As young Thomas Peaceful looks back over his childhood from the battlefields of the First World War, his memories are full of family life deep in the countryside.
But the clock is ticking, and every moment that Tommo spends remembering how things used to be, means another moment closer to something that will change his life forever.
Adapted for schools by Simon Reade from Michael Morpurgo's poignant and deeply moving novel of the First World War, the play is ideal for use in the classroom and the drama studio. The extensive resource section provides many opportunities for drama, discussion, wider reading and writing.
