If you only have time to see one show, see this one! What you see will stay with you for years. The technical expertise, acting and of course, amazing story make this show an absolute must for adults and children.

War Horse is one of the most astonishing feats of theatre ever created. The principal horses are giant puppets but after a matter of seconds you only see a living, breathing horse. It really is that convincing. Steven Morpurgo writes for children, so do not expect sophisticated dialogue, but the story is touching and the brutality of the first world... More

We saw this at the cinema relayed direct from the theatre. Loved the period detail, the music and the superb acting. The horses are incredible!

So well presented and a fascinating story. I hadn't seen the film but was treated to see the stage production which I found very interesting and cleverly done with the few props used.

The show was amazing, the effects impresive, the story is naive and only one character is well developped.

After a while you no longer notice the people operating the horses and you imagine the horses are real.

Before coming to see this performance I had Read the Book and also Seen the Film. However none of them tell the story as well as this. My seat was N11 and although slightly angled I had no trouble viewing any of the performance. All the actors where perfect and the use of puppet horses actually does work extremely well... More
