“Genius isn’t too strong a word to describe this astonishing production.” — Daily Telegraph

“So exhilarating that it makes you rejoice to be alive…sweeping drama of extraordinary power.” — The Times

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 First World War 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 bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage. DCP digital.
