A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship.
England, 1914. As World War I begins, Joey, young Alberts beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. Hes soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no mans land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness that is currently playing to packed houses in London, New York and Toronto. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africas Handspring Puppet Company that bring to life breathing, galloping, charging horses strong enough for men to ride.
