Warhorse

Went to see Warhorse at the New London Theatre yesterday. It is absolutely stunning. It's based on the book by Michael Morpurgo about the First World War as seen through the story of a horse called Joey who is sold to the cavalry and shipped to fight in France, and Albert, the farm boy who raised Joey and enlists in the army to look for him and bring him home.

The horses are represented on stage by incredible life size puppets that feel very real and the story of friendship and the horrors of the Great War are truly moving. The charges across the battlefields gave me goosebumps.
