Norbury to remember those who have served with production of 'Private Peaceful'

Droitwich Editorial 7th Nov, 2023 Updated: 7th Nov, 2023   0

THE NORBURY will be using the power of the theatre to remember those who have fallen leading up to Armistice Day with a production of Private Peaceful.

The play will be presented by the Norbury Players and follows the Peaceful brothers, Tommo and Charlie, who have a tough rural childhood after facing the death of their father, financial hardship and a cruel landlord.

They help each other through the hardship but their loyalties are tested when they both fall for the same girl- and then the Great War comes.

From there, we see 18-year-old Private Tommo Peaceful in the trenches as he tells a story of courage, devotion and sibling rivalry on what may be his last night on earth.

The production will run from tomorrow (Wednesday, November 8) until Saturday, November 11.

There will be a performance at 7.30pm each evening as well as a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday.
