More About War Horse London - Innovation in Action
Based on the 1982 children's novel, this play tells the story of a young boy named Albert, whose father buys a colt (Joey) at auction. The two form a unique bond that is eventually severed when Albert's father sells the horse to the cavalry at the beginning of the First World War. Despite one of the captains keeping a careful watch over Joey, the horse is eventually captured by the Germans and ends up in the care of a young girl and her grandfather. When Joey is recaptured and a horse he is friendly with dies, it suddenly becomes unsure whether the horse will be reunited with Albert after all.
If you aren't swayed by this tear jerking story then you will be by the imaginative way in which it's told. Featuring a unique collaboration between the National Theatre and the Handspring Puppet Company, this boundary breaking piece of theatre uses complex life-size puppets to bring Joey to life on stage.
