War Horse

Media Title

Adapted by Nick Stafford from Michael Morpurgo’s 1982 novel (which was recently adapted by Stephen Spielberg for the silver screen) War Horse concerns a young man intent on rescuing his beloved horse from the battlefields of World War I. Featuring a cast of 37 actors (all unknown), the show’s real stars are the amazing life-size puppets from Handspring Puppet Company that bring the horses to life with some of the most creative stagecrafts ever conceived. Even if you’ve seen Spielberg’s film, nothing will prepare you for the emotional power of the stage version which eloquently captures the unique relationship between human beings and the animals they love. -J. Cooper Robb
