Epic drama Private Peaceful marches back to The Grand in Blackpool May 2–7.

The Peaceful brothers, Tommo and Charlie, have a tough rural childhood facing the loss of their father, financial hardship and a cruel landlord. Their fierce loyalty to each other pulls them through, until one day they both fall for the same girl. And then the Great War comes…

In this new stage adaptation, the horrors of conflict are set against the endearing love between two brothers.

This production includes some strong language, strobe and transitional lighting, flashing lights and theatrical smoke. It also includes loud bangs and gun shots.
