Since its first performance at the National Theatre in 2007, WAR HORSE has become an international smash hit, capturing the imagination of millions around the world. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, WAR HORSE takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of World War I France. Filled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life–size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who thrillingly bring the horses to life on stage.
Marianne Elliott, Tom Morris
