Michael Morpurgo wrote War Horse, a children’s novel that was published by Kaye & Ward in the United Kingdom in 1982. The story revolves around a horse named Joey, bought by the Cavalry during the First World War, and his former owner Albert who tries to bring him home. The book later became an award-winning play in 2007 and a famous movie by Steven Spielberg in 2011. The first 2007-run at the National Theatre won every heart in the venue. The seamless puppetry of the South African Handspring Puppet Company enriches the story. Witness this heart-touching story and discover what makes it so popular by purchasing War Horse tickets.

The critically acclaimed production has won Oliver Awards and Tony Awards on Broadway. London’s West End has hosted the show for eight years. Since 2005, War Horse has been staged in more than eleven countries across the world in front of more than seven million people, becoming one of the most loved productions in the world.
