Now War Horse returns to where it began – the National's Lyttelton stage – for a limited run to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.
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 stage, 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 chance to see War Horse in London.
Tickets for War Horse National Theatre 2018 go on sale at 8:30am on 12 July.
