Michael Morpurgo's moving story about the bond between one boy and his horse through the challenges of the first world war is told with tenderness and imagination. Whether or not you're familiar with the book or film version of the story, War Horse is something else altogether on stage.
Joey the horse is brought to life with extraordinary feats of puppetry. The vividness as he gallops across stages, nuzzles and whinnies is breathtaking, tear-jerking and rightfully hailed by critics as 'genius' 'magic' and 'uniquely moving'. Expect to laugh, sob and leave feeling a little more alive.
This is one show that certainly deserves its fanfare of five star reviews. Don't miss your last chance to see War Horse in London.
