An Elephant in the Garden

Michael Morpurgo
 

A stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling children’s novel.

1945. Dresden, Germany. Lizzie, her mother – and an elephant from the zoo, flee the Allied fire-bombing in the end-game of the Second World War.

Escaping the Allies’ advance from the West – and also the advancing Russian armies from the East – this extraordinary trio of refugees meet: a downed RAF officer, cowering in a barn; a homeless school choir on the run and their Countess saviour, harbouring them from the Nazis; and the mechanised American cavalry, appearing over the horizon.

It is Lizzie’s story – but Marlene, the elephant, is the heroine. Plodding, obdurate, opportunistic, load bearing, indestructible, cheering – Marlene embodies the stubbornness of the human will and how it will do everything to survive.

Private Peaceful

Michael Morpurgo
 

Private Peaceful relives the life of Private Tommo Peaceful, a young First World War soldier awaiting the firing squad at dawn. During the night he looks back at his short but joyful past growing up in rural Devon: his exciting first days at school; the accident in the forest that killed his father; his adventures with Molly, the love of his life; and the battles and injustices of war that brought him to the front line. Winner of the Blue Peter Book of the Year, Private Peaceful is by the third Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, award - winning author of War Horse. His inspiration came from a visit to Ypres where he was shocked to discover how many young soldiers were court - martialled and shot for cowardice during the First World War.

This edition also includes introductory essays by Michael Morpurgo, Associate Director of the Private Peaceful production Mark Leipacher, as well as an essay from Simon Reade, adaptor & director of this stage adaptation.
