Baking and a dusty suitcase of memories combine to tell a moving story about one family's loss in World War One.

Te Manawa is bringing back an Anzac Day favourite with two performances of Anna Bailey's "Biscuits and Bullets", a WWI puppet show. The show was designed to accompany Te Manawa's touring exhibition "Farewell Zealandia - Forgotten Kiwi Songs of WWI".

The show incorporates some of the music used in "Farewell Zealandia" to help tell the story of one family's experience of war. Wellington-based puppeteer Anna Bailey has drawn on research from accounts of the war and her great-grandfather's letters home.

The puppet show uses a combination of a human-sized puppet, string puppets and shadow puppets, and biscuit dough.
