War Horse

War Horse Tickets

New London, London

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land. Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. The National's epic is based on War Horse, the celebrated novel by the Children's Laureate (2003-05) Michael Morpurgo . Actors working with magnificent, life-sized puppets by the internationally renowned Handspring Puppet Company lead us on a gripping journey through history. Presented by the National Theatre and National Angels..

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, the National Theatre's internationally-acclaimed production of War Horse is an unforgettable theatrical experience. Hailed by Time Magazine as 'A Landmark Theatre Event', War Horse is a spectacular, powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs. At its heart, are astonishing life-sized puppets by South Africa's Tony Award©-winning Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.
