War Horse based on the ​beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo,
adapted by Nick Stafford  
in association with ​the award-winning Handspring Puppet Company 

The critically acclaimed and international
smash-hit play War Horse returns to cinemas for the first
time this November to mark Remembrance Day. 

At the outbreak of World War One, Albert’s beloved
horse, Joey, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Though
still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him
and bring him home. Now seen by more than 8 million people around the
world, 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.
