War Horse - New Victoria Theatre, Woking
Wednesday 1 to Saturday 18 August
War Horse, the National Theatre’s acclaimed play based on the much-loved novel by Michael Morpurgo, is following eight record-breaking years in London’s West End with a UK tour. The play tells the moving story of Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, as he is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France at the outbreak of World War I. He serves on both sides during an extraordinary journey, before finding himself alone in no-man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm – too young to enlist – cannot forget Joey and embarks on a mission to bring him home. Don’t miss this unforgettable theatrical event full of drama, music and presenting the incredible life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company.
