Michael Morpugo’s moving story Private Peaceful has been wonderfully adapted for the stage to make for engaging viewing no matter their age.
A co-production from BoxLess Theatre and the Barn Theatre, and adapted from the novel by Michael Morpurgo, Private Peaceful is the story of Private Thomas Peaceful (Emily Costello, the first female performer to play the role professionally).
The BoxLess Theatre production of Simon Reade’s adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful will be the first new production to be staged indoors in London’s West End since the Government closed theatres in March. Part of Nimax Theatres’ plans to reopen its theatres, the show’s two-week season at the Garrick Theatre will run from 7 to 22 November 2020.

The new trailer for BoxLess Theatre’s Hedgehog takes you onto the dance floor and inside the mind of lead character Manda, who’s not, despite her best efforts, having a good time. Check out the trailer, then book your tickets!
What sparks the creativity in a writer’s mind? In the case of Hedgehog writer Alexander Knott it was a blog post written by BoxLess Theatre’s Artistic Director Zoe Grain about “struggling just to get through the day”. Knott tells us about how it inspired him, how a piece for a solo female voice ended up with a cast of three and what triggered his writing career.
