Summary

This production - adapted by John Tams and Sally Ward at the behest of the author - is a moving tale of a boy's extraordinary bond with his horse during World War One.

The story of a farm horse sold from Devon into the mire, wire and machine guns of the Great War of 1914-1918 brings together a stellar cast, including Timothy Spall, Brenda Blethyn and Bob Hoskins, with music and songs from some of the UK's finest folk musicians.

This drama was directed by John Tams, who was nominated for an Olivier Award for his work on the phenomenally successful War Horse stage epic at the National Theatre ['the theatrical event of the decade' (Times)] and which also inspired the Steven Spielberg film.

'Sublime.' (Michael Morpurgo, on hearing this completed drama)

I loved it VERRY VERRY much and I wish there was more to listen to and how come there's only one chapter and its really sad at some points.
