If someone told you the production company of War Horse uses puppets to bring the steeds of the story to life, you might
be right in being a tad skeptical of the show's authenticity, but rest assured these are no ordinary puppets. These are world-class,
state-of-the-art animatronics, fantastic contraptions that brilliantly weld technology and imagination to create full-size
horses that can do everything a real horse can.
Joey is a horse given to a young boy, Albert, and Albert dedicates his young life to raising and training Joey right. But
fate interferes when Joey is conscripted to join the cavalry with the war effort in France during The Great War, and Albert
is forced to say goodbye to the horse he loves so much. On the front, Joey experiences hellish, gruesome battle scenes, grisly
spectacles that no man or beast should ever witness. In this horrific state, Joey is swept up in an extraordinary sequence
of events, becoming lost in No Man's Land, fighting for both sides and unsure where home is. And all the while, Albert is
plotting how to get his horse back. Purchase Des
