This October meet Walter, the bravest pigeon ever to fly.

The year is 1915. Bob Constantine, a sugar boiler in a toffee factory in Byker lives a simple and happy life. But the “War To End All Wars” rages across Europe and Bob has made the decision to enlist and fight for his King and country.

Leaving his wife Rosie and daughter Ivy behind on Tyneside, Bob enlists with the 9th Battalion, Northumberland Fusiliers. After a short training he is posted to the front lines of the Western Front. Walter, Bob’s precious champion homing pigeon travels with him.

Bob soon witnesses the true horror of war culminating in a big push over the top into a bloody battle over territory. After a fierce fire fight lasting for days, Bob becomes pinned down, injured and with little chance of rescue. It is up to Walter to carry an important message across the trenches and the battlefields, above the mud, blood and across the waters.

Embarking on an “adventure to end all adventures”, Walter must face dangers at every turn, but with bravery and determination to fulfil his master’s one final wish.

A play with people and shadows written by Steve Byron & directed by Ali Pritchard
