More About War Horse - Bringing Joey to Life
Adapted from Michael Morpurgo's classic children's war novel, the play offers a balanced, humanistic portrayal of the First World War and the hardships endured by those involved. Following the journey of the much-loved stallion Joey, the story illustrates how jealousy and greed tear the horse away from his affectionate owner Albert. Sold to the British army, the young horse is subjected to horrors in the trenches in France. Deeply concerned about the fate of his horse, underage Albert enrols in the army in an effort to be reunited with his best friend and companion.
The Handspring Puppet Company defied concerns about how a horse could be effectively portrayed onstage, using magnificent, almost life-like wooden structures to accomplish the task. The 2011 Stephen Spielberg film of the same name helped the West End production sell out more than 97% of War Horse tickets before the year was out.
