Amazing - the acting was fantastic - a must see!!
Not badly priced - a very emotional story, and considering there were not many props it was incredible! You have to remind yourself the horses are not real!!

Astonished at the brilliance of the play. Suspend your disbelief in the sheer art of the performance given by the incredible cast. Gulp, bring tissues...you will hear sobs throughout the play from the audience.

Not to be missed especially in this WW1 commemorative year.

I got up early to get in the queue for day tickets and it was well worth it. We got front row tickets for £15 each! We had an amazing view! (Apart from for about 5 minutes during a dramatic scene when a prop was blocking our view but we could still hear everything and it didn't hinder the story at all).

At first we were a bit unsure whether sitting in the front row was the best idea as we were able to see up close and personal the actors inside the horse puppets however the staging and choreography is so good that we were soon completely oblivious to them and all you could concentrate on was the horse himself.

The story is very touching, particularly in this 100th year since the war. If ever you are going to see this show, this is the year!

We were able to walk up to the Box Office and purchase seats an hour before the show. They were great seats, it isn't a large theatre. My husband and I loved the show, our 13 year old felt it was not realistic. Theatre was comfortable, unlike the Apollo which had no AC!! A big plus in the summer. Plenty of time to get refreshments at intermission. A good experience.

The show I attended was at the Albert Hall with Gareth Malone and the Military Wives Choir. The most wonderful show.
