War Horse (theatre)

This National Theatre Live screening could well be the biggest event of their season, if not of several seasons! The whole War Horse phenomenon has been so wildly successful that I am sure many people will want to see it, especially as tickets to see the stage play 'in person' are still pretty pricey. There is still a month to go before the broadcast. Hopefully Cineworld won't have already sold all the seats - or if they have, perhaps they can be persuaded to add another screen?

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-sized puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

Cineworld, Thu 27th Feb, 19:00.
Tickets £14.20 adults, £12.10 concessions, available online, by calling 0871 200 2000, or in person from the foyer.
