War Horse | New London Theatre |Show and Booking Details

New London Theatre | Booking until February 2016

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

A Chinese-language production of War Horse will open in autumn 2015 at the National Theatre of China’s theatre in Beijing and will then tour across China. In August last year, the BBC War Horse Prom was staged at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the centenary commemorations of World War One.
