“Amazing”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

This how was capivating, great story of course, great acting and the use of the "horses" was terrific. You probably need to have read the book or seen the film to be able to fully grasp the story but I could be wrong on that one.

“Front runner”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Along with Chariots of Fire at the Gielgud Theatre, this is the best non-musical stage entertainment in London by far and the only play currently showing in town that I have been to see more than once - and would go again.

I agree it far outshines the film, being much shorter and more focused and the stars of the stage show -namely the amazingly life-like full size puppets would simply not work on film, whereas in the theatre they move the audience to tears of joy and delight every night. A very special show indeed.

“Even hubby enjoyed it”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Theatre was very hot though - no air conditioning and had to climb forever even to get to the stalls seats.

“Great show”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

We enjoyed the show. It was impressive how they represented the horses on the stage.

The night we were there, it was packed and the theatre was very warm - perhaps the air-conditioning was having trouble coping.

It was a good night out.
