At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

The touring production visits the NT to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day.

“The NT's landmark hit continues to thrill in a new slightly streamlined production.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“The puppetry and songs have the power to transcend more naturalistic stagecraft and to speak meaningfully of the unspeakable.”
