War Horse

If you can I’d urge you to go see War Horse.

It’s based on a Michael Morpurgo children’s book and while I think that there was almost every First World War cliche you could think of in the play the staging and production are just draw droppingly good.

One of the central characters in the play is Joey, the horse, which is achieved through puppetry, but done so well that you forget the 3 people it takes to make the horse work. And the horses are so well made that you’ll marvel at just how they manage to get the subtle movements just right.

The night we went the theatre was jam packed and so it might be difficult to get a ticket, but if you can you should go.
