Sandy was the only Australian War Horse to return
home from World War I. This is his poignant and fragmented war story. Through
Sandy we experience the lives of three men who fought in the war.
Major General Sir William Throsby Bridges is mortally wounded at
Gallipoli, and Sandy is his charger. A veterinary officer is caught with Sandy
behind the lines on the Western Front in a gas shell barrage. A ‘permanently
unfit’ soldier becomes a groom and brings Sandy home. Each is affected by their
symbiotic relationship with the horse.
This unique, poetic piece of theatre captures the brutality of war and
the heroism of the soldiers and horses who served.
Sandy is the horse full of wattle who drank the waters of the Murray in
bucketloads, and who danced with bogong moths.
He is our connection to all those left behind.
