War Horse Theater Show in London

See this incredible production of War Horse on the West End!

Telling the story of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse novel and the subsequent movie adaptation by Steven Spielberg, the acclaimed play combines familiar and heartrending tales from the plot with life-size puppets and impressive choreography. Follow the life journey of Joey the horse on stage, and see his transformation from plough horse to war horse when he helped serve WWI soldiers in battle.

Adapted for the stage by the renowned British playwright Nick Stafford, the production features soul-stirring music plus choreography designed for the war horse puppet and other large puppets on stage. Watch galloping horses charging across the set and see the dramas of the battlefields brought to life in front of you.

You have the choice of two seating options for the performance inside the New London Theatre. Standard priced seats offer a good view of the stage and are usually located in the rear stalls or dress circle.

The performance lasts two hours and forty minutes and includes an interval break.
