It sometimes felt as though time had stood still down on the family farm - swallows nesting in the eaves, the old Fordson tractor quietly rusting at the back of the barn, Grandpa still tending his chickens - that is, until the Summer his grandson finished school and came to stay, and the old man started telling stories of what it had been like on the farm when he was a boy.

Award-winning former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo has written a compelling sequel to his much-loved novel War Horse, a moving account of the changing face of the English countryside and a beautifully-crafted reminder that stories really can reach out across the generations.

Now this magical tale of the bonds linking grandfather to grandson and ultimately both to the land has been brought to life by critically-acclaimed New Perspectives Theatre Company in a delightful show combining drama, storytelling and original music.

'Morpurgo is a master story-teller and slowly, in this clever adaptation his words begin to grip' **** Daily Telegraph

'The two actors share a wonderful rapport...we hang on every word' **** Metro

'A small production with a big heart' Mail on Sunday
