In this edition of the Weekender, a puppet horse, life-sized Jenga party, Slim Shady’s hometown, and three other things to do in Ottawa this weekend.
The First World War began one hundred years ago, engulfing Europe and the world in a conflict that would affect not just men, women and children, but animals as well. The National Arts Centre presents War Horse, an internationally acclaimed, moving and imaginative drama about a boy who braves the trenches of France to find his beloved horse, and which features astonishing life-sized puppets, stirring music and song. Until Jan. 26. From $38. National Arts Centre, 53 Elgin St., nac-can.ca
