Very polished. Very creative. A little slow in places. Could it have used more of the traditional, well known, songs from WW1? A memorable evening.

storyline that...continued

Too Long and somewhat boring. The 1st half almost put me to sleep. The English accents made it very difficult to follow and they cast seemed to be talking slowly to try and make it more understandable. Puppeters on the smaller horses was very...continued
