The Show
Telling the story of the unbreakable bond between a young man and his beloved horse, War Horse has become one of the West End's most popular shows. Set during the First World War the play follows the lives of farmer's son, Albert and his horse, Joey, as they grow up and apart only to be reunited in what can only be described as a twist of fate. Harrowing war scenes and the character's heart-wrenching misfortunes will have viewers on the edge of their seats throughout the performance, making War Horse an unforgettable show.

Based on the 1982 bestselling novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted by Nick Stafford for the stage, the undisputed stars of the show are the life size animatronic horses created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company who bring the characters of Joey and Topthorn to life. Directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris and with music by Adrian Sutton and songs by John Tams, Warhorse is a spectacular combination of theatrical innovation and good old fashioned story telling, taking the audience on a journey from the tranquil Devon countryside through the horrors and atrocities of war and back again.

With over 2 million people having seen the production in London and over 4 million worldwide this harrowing yet heart-warming story has captured the imagination of the world and set new standards for what is possible during a live performance. So large is its appeal that in 2011 a film version was directed by Steven Spielberg and starred the cream of British acting talent including Emily Watson, Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch.

PLEASE NOTE: due to the nature of the story and its representation of the First World War the show is recommended for children over the age of 10.

The show transferred to the New London Theatre in the West End for preview performances on the 28th of March 2009 and opened to the public on the 3rd of April.
