National Theatre Live: War Horse

Saturday, May 8 - Monday, May 10, 2021

Now seen by more than 8 million people around the world, WAR HORSE is a powerfully moving and imaginative stage drama, a show of phenomenal inventiveness, filled with stirring music and songs. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses thrillingly to life on stage. Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford.
