War Horse

The National Theatre’s internationally-acclaimed smash-hit War Horse returns to London this autumn for a limited season at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, an exciting new venue located just steps away from Wembley Stadium.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
Hailed as a ‘landmark theatre event’ (Time), War Horse is an unforgettable theatrical event, not to be missed.

Performances begin 18 October 2019, for 6 weeks only.

  • Best show we’ve seen but beware merchandise rip-off

    13 November 2019

    Saw this in Southampton a few years ago but we were amazed by this production from the National- a huge talented cast delivered a robust but meaningful story so appropriate for this time of year. My only gripe was overpriced merchandise with a paperback copy of the novel price marked £7.99, gleefully explained as ‘we’re charging £15 for that’ and they were - legal I think not.

  • Wonderful production.

    13 November 2019

    We loved our evening at War Horse and the puppeteers were truly wonderful. The story is so moving and beautifully told although difficult to watch at times. It is even more of a tear jerker when experienced so close to Armistice Day. Everyone should see this play!

  • Engrossing performance

    13 November 2019

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance, we were amazed how many school children attended the matinee and were totally enthralled too. I've read the book seen the film but this was the 'icing onn the cake', very special.
