War Horse - UK Tour

New Theatre, Oxford

Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, the National Theatre's War Horse is an unforgettable theatrical experience. 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.

As World War I begins, Joey is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in No Man’s Land. But Albert cannot forget Joey he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
