Press reviews
  • The Times: So exhilarating it makes you rejoice to be alive. Its sheer skill and invention are awe-inspiring
  • The Sunday Times: War Horse only confirms the National's extraordinary knack of turning children's literature into the finest drama. Stunning
  • Sunday Express: An extraordinary piece of theatre which is both epic and intimate. Guaranteed to move the heart
About War Horse
  • War Horse is a romanticised tale of a boy who tries to find his horse, which has been sold off to fight in the Cavalry in World War One. Too young to enlist, young Albert embarks on a dangerous journey to France to find Joey, who after fighting for both sides, ends up in No Man's land. With life sized puppets replacing the real thing, this 'astonishing production' at the National theatre will have you pulling out the tissues and wanting to go back and watch it again and again!
