War horse

Today we went to the theatre in London and saw Warhorse. The horses and some of the animals were all huge puppets. They were lifelike and amazing.

The horses name was Joey and the main character who owned joey was Albert. Ted is his father and Rose is his mother, they both love Albert and joey. They have a farm in Devon in England and are very poor.

Then suddenly a war starts between the English and the Germans and captain nickals (leader of the army battalion in Devon) decides to get all the horses that he could get for the army leaders to ride on into war.

Joey was one of them because Ted sold it to them for 100 pounds. Albert was too young to go into war. He was only 16 and you had to be 18 to go into war so Albert said he was 18 and went into war in search of Joey.

It was so amazing how they did the puppet horses.The people must be so strong. I like all the costumes. My favourite character was a goose who whenever they open the door the goose always tried to get in.

Its a 10/10 from me for that performance.

War Horse sounds great - I wanted to see it in Bexhill this year - but I missed it
