"And it's the version in which, as the reader of the story on stage, I am most involved. Every time I read it, with John and Barry's glorious music interwoven with the words, I feel as if I'm telling it for the first time, as if I was there, as the old soldier in the pub was, all those years ago." - Michael Morpurgo
"A captivating and poignant experience - read with so much expression by Michael, and the songs so simply presented, so familiar, taking on new life as an integral part of the story. By the end of the performance there was scarcely a dry eye in the audience." - Hector Gilchrist for efestivals.co.uk
Michael Morpurgo will be available to speak to after the performance.
