Travel back 100 years to the battle fields of WWI, to a time when lives depended on the flight of pigeons to carry vital messages behind enemy lines.

This is the incredible true story of one of those birds, who became known as ‘Cher Ami’.

Charmingly inventive puppets, original live music and delightfully daft characters combine to uncover a remarkable historical story.
