"Ingo was a very nervous dog. He was always afraid of the dark, loud noises and did not like making new friends. Owned and cherished by a young girl living in the city of London, life for Ingo is as easy as pie. Yet, as war looms once more and the Blitz becomes a very immediate danger, the girl and her dog are evacuated to the country. But when Ingo is left on the train, he is suddenly plunged into an adventure which tips his steady world upside down. He experiences the many trials of wartime. He is lost and found and lost again, as Ingo wonders what it means to be brave and discovers courage he never knew he had."

Using their unique style, an amalgamation of storytelling, puppetry and movement, combining fact with imaginative original writing, Ditto Theatre Company tells this heart-warming tale of bravery, hope and finding courage where you thought you had none.
