War Horse at the New London Theatre
War Horse is the National Theatre’s epic, Olivier Award-winning World War I family drama based on the celebrated novel by Michael Morpurgo and featuring actors working with life-sized puppets.
War Horse, based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, is a powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and magnificent artistry. South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company brings breathing, galloping, full-scale horses to life on the stage — their flanks, hides and sinews built of steel, leather and aircraft cables.
Experience the emotional journey that charges through the battlefields of history straight to hearts of audiences around the world.
Based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse is adapted by Nick Stafford and in association with Handspring Puppet Company.
