19th December 2020

The critically acclaimed and international smash-hit play War Horse returns to cinemas. Based on the ​beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, adapted by Nick Stafford  in association with ​the award-winning  Handspring Puppet Company.

At the outbreak of World War One, Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

Now seen by more than 8 million people around the world, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

165 minutes including a 20 minute interval
