“Unforgettable”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

An amazing production contrasting the peace of pre war Devon with the horror of the war in France/Belgium. The horse 'puppets' are incredible & Very believable. I think the drabness of the set brought home the awfulness of the trenches. I found the gas attack especially poignant as my husband's grandfather died at Ypres in 1915. The cast were excellent & a special mention goes to the very goose like goose!

A simply incredible show, you can get completely lost in the emotion and forget that there are people controlling the puppets

“I knew Joey was a puppet and I still cried”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Go see War Horse. We had seen the movie so we knew what was going to happen and we were still on the edge of our seats during the production. The horse is absolutely amazing, the acting is wonderful, and the music is fantastic. Once Joey grows from a colt to a horse, you start believing he is real and no longer even notice the puppeteers. His journey is exciting and emotional.
