National Theatre Live:

The National Theatre’s original stage production of War Horse

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 08 March - 13 April 2014

The National Theatre’s original stage production of War Horse, captured live to cinemas from London’s West End.

Since its first performance at the National Theatre in 2007, War Horse has become an international smash hit, capturing the imagination of four million people around the world.

Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, War Horse takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France. Filled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

Don’t miss your chance to experience this landmark production in a cinema near you.
