It was the first time we have been to the theatre together!! An experience I hope to regularly repeat.
War Horse was stunning. My mind worked overtime taking all the amazing horses in. They are handspring puppets...life size horses, handled by 3 breathtaking men and women; Head, Heart and Hind!
Originally a book by Michael Morpurgo, about the forgotten horses in WW1.
The production was beautiful...the work that must have gone into researching the movements of the animals, even down to the tails swishing, and the ear twitching. And then to make puppets that possess all these qualities....stunning, wonderful, and very moving.
....The goose was hilarious!!
If you get the chance to see it, I couldn't recommend it enough!
