Malvern College Drama Production – Private Peaceful

15 Aug 2013

In the final week of the Summer term, Malvern College’s Foundation Year presented a dramatised version of Michael Morpurgo’s well-loved World War One novel. A cast and crew of over 30 pupils presented this poignant tale of two brothers whose close relationship supports them through childhood days in the Devon countryside and sustains them on the bloody fields of battle scarred and war torn France.

Murporgo’s moving tale of comradeship, honour and injustice made for a wonderful evening of theatre, with a number of audience members caught up in the intense emotion of the story. The young cast’s debut performance at the College received great acclaim for their storytelling skills and sensitive performances, bringing the ‘curtain’ down on another impressive year of drama at Malvern with theatrical flourish.
