War Horse

Start Date: Feb. 29, 2012 - Jan 06, 2013

Location: Princess of Wales

England, 1914.  As World War I begins, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France.  He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in No Man's Land.  But Albert cannot forget Joey and, though not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find his horse and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a production of phenomenal inventiveness.  At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on stage. "An extraordinary piece of theatre that is at once both epic and intimate, absolutely guaranteed to move the heart!" - Sunday Express of London
