    War Horse Tickets

    The National Theatre’s much-hyped War Horse returns, featuring breathtaking life-size horse puppets courtesy of the Handspring Puppet Company.

    Joey gallops back to London

    The beloved stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s novel War Horse returns to the National Theatre for a strictly limited season. Celebrating its 11th anniversary, the production by Nick Stafford and South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company marks the centenary of Armistice Day.

    A powerful and moving World War One story about a boy and his horse on the front lines has rocketed to stratospheric heights. The Olivier Award-winning show is not just a tale of war, but also of the bond between humans and animals. When Albert’s father sells his horse, Joey, to the military, Albert lies about his age in order to find his beloved friend, embarking on a treacherous journey to bring him home.

    Running for two years at the National Theatre before transferring to the West End for a remarkable seven-year run, War Horse has wowed audiences and critics around the globe.

    A touching, thrilling and emotional story of love, war, and fierce loyalty, if you missed War Horse tickets during its first run, don't make the same mistake again as the show returns to the National Theatre for another spectacular season.
