NT LIVE: War Horse Encores

The National Theatre’s original stage production of War Horse, broadcast live from London’s West End to cinemas. Since its first performance at the National Theatre in 2007, War Horse has become an international smash hit.

Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, War Horse takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France. Filled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing lifesized puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

★★★★★   “The theatre event of the decade.” ~ Sunday Times
★★★★★   “Genius isn’t too strong a word to describe this astonishing production.” ~ Daily Telegraph
