Morpurgo: War Plays

Simon Reade, Michael Morpurgo

Translated by Simon Reade

Three war plays by Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse, dramatised by Simon Reade.

Private Peaceful relives the short life of Tommo growing up in rural Devon before fighting the battles and facing the injustices of the First World War. In Toro! Toro! young Antonito liberates his favourite bull from the ritualised killing of the bullfight as he tries to escape the Spanish Civil War. In The Mozart Question Paolo Levi discovers the astonishing truth about his parents’ flight to Venice from the gas chambers of the Second World War.

Each play is accompanied by an introduction from Michael Morpurgo.
