About the Author:

Simon Reade has adapted Michael Morpurgo's Toro! Toro! and The Mozart Question as well as the phenomenally successful stage and screen versions of Private Peaceful. His other plays include Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp, Not the End of the World, The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark, Pride and Prejudice, and for the RSC, Ted Hughes' Tales From Ovid, Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children and Epitaph for the Official Secrets Act.

Michael Morpurgo is an English author, poet, playwright and librettist, best known for his work in children's literature. He was the third Children's Laureate. His children’s novel War Horse has been adapted for stage where it became a smash hit success in the UK, before transferring to Broadway and Toronto. War Horse has also been adapted for the screen, directed by Steven Spielberg, and was released in 2012.

Review:

"'Pitched to perfection for a young audience - The glory of Morpurgo is that [he reconnects] us with our past. He simply opens our hearts to feeling.' Daily Telegraph 'A haunting indictment of war's stupidity and waste' The Times 'The sheer restrained power of Morpurgo's writing keeps you gripped.' Guardian" ' - a balanced, considered, well-structured piece of theatre, impeccably performed and beautifully committed.'Five stars - The Public Reviews ' - a truly special piece of theatre, and from the standing ovation at the end - it looks like I'm not alone in my thinking.' Broadway World
