Tickets to the play War Horse at the New London Theatre are hard to come by and it’s not difficult to see why. Beginning its life as a smash-hit at the National Theatre, War Horse has now enjoyed overwhelming success on Broadway and the West End. Both critics and audiences alike have been bowled over by its visual effects and heart-rending story.

War Horse is an adaptation of Children’s Laureate (2003-2005) Michael Morpugo’s 1982 novel of the same name. It is the story of Joey, a horse that is sold to the Cavalry and sent to serve in France amongst the fighting and the misery of the First World War. However, his young owner Albert cannot forget him and embarks upon an arduous journey to find his beloved friend.

The endurance of love and the horrors of war combine in this astonishing production. Joey is vividly brought to life by the remarkable puppetry of Handspring Puppet Company's Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler and their team of expert puppeteers. This is a singular piece of theatre, unlike anything you will have seen before. It is technically accomplished and emotionally fraught, offering spectacular visuals and a dogged depiction of the despair of conflict. It is a true spectacle and not to be missed.

My 15 year old son and I went to see Warhorse last night and had one of the best evenings that we have ever had at a London theatre. The horses were utterly amazing and the use of the stage and minimal props was fantastic. That my newly monosyllabic teenage son was engaged throughout the whole performance was testament to the amazing production that we were treated to. Such a shame that it is ending in London as we would definately love to see it again. You forget that the horses are puppets, their faces and movements are so realistic... look out for the goose! For once, a West End theatre production that was worth every penny... the cast are good too! There was a standing ovation at the end.

The show itself was excellent and came up to all our expectations. However I'm not sure that I read anywhere how many steps were involved in reaching the circle seats......not a good experience for two people with disabilities. It was also a pity there was a fairly lengthy technical "hitch" when we had a long stand (not good). However when I asked for a seat the official found us two which two younger people kindly gave up.
