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.
