The National Theatre’s internationally-acclaimed smash-hit War Horse returns to London this autumn for a limited season at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, an exciting new venue located just steps away from Wembley Stadium.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

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 journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
Hailed as a ‘landmark theatre event’ (Time), War Horse is an unforgettable theatrical event, not to be missed.

Performances begin 18 October 2019, for 6 weeks only.

We had the most brilliant time there. War Horse was incredible and very well acted. You could imagine everything they went through, it all looked so real. The seats we had were fabulous, right at the front in the middle. So wanting to go again. Will keep an eye out for when it comes back. Theatre was great

This is my 4th time seeing War Horse and I'll continue to see it every time it tours. I'm pretty much crying by the very first scene, and oh when the adult Joey is finally revealed I'm a mess! I love the singing, the lighting is so simple yet so effective, the battle scenes are stunning. The puppeteers are so talented and must have studied horse behaviour inside out. So much better than the movie, so highly recommended!
