Travel independently to the New London Theatre in central London to enjoy War Horse
, the moving fictional story of Joey, a former farm horse and WWI cavalry horse.
Based on Michael Morpurgo’s beloved children’s book War Horse, and Steven Spielberg’s movie version of the story, this acclaimed production combines epic action and poignant drama with astonishing, life-size puppets created by the Tony Award-winning Handspring Puppet Company, who bring beautiful, breathing and cantering horses to vivid life on stage.
Follow the journey of Joey as he is shipped to the battlefields of France from idyllic Devon, only to become embroiled in the violence and suffering. Then, be moved as his young owner, Albert, enlists in the army and sets out to find his beloved companion.
Adapted for the stage by renowned British playwright Nick Stafford, the production will whisk you to wartime France with soul-stirring music and incredible choreography. Watch amazed as galloping horses charge across the set and be entranced by the affecting bonds of trust and loyalty that build between Joey and Albert.
You have the choice of two seating options for the performance. Standard-price seats offer a good view of the stage, usually from the rear stalls or dress circle. Alternatively, opt for top-price seating to enjoy a full view of the stage and get closer up to the electrifying action.
The performance lasts approximately two hours and 40 minutes, including an interval break. Your experience finishes when you leave the theater after curtain down.
