Culture Express : The forgotten heroes

【明報專訊】WORLD WAR heroes are more likely to be remembered and commemorated than their easily forgotten partners — horses that also went to war. War Horse, originally a work of children's literature, was adapted into a well-known 2011 film. But well before that it had already been made into a stage show. It could be summarised as a combination of puppetry and a heart-warming stage drama about Albert and his horse Joey. Perhaps this is a truism (不言而喻的話) but the show's presentation is comparatively unusual and noteworthy.
