The power of War Horse

19th February 2016

Representing our long-standing client, The Brighton Centre, Gem and Lizzie spent an afternoon at the National Theatre where they were treated to an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience of the acclaimed production of War Horse along with a number of journalists.

Coinciding with the Centenary commemorations of the end of the First World War, the multi award-winning production will be embarking on a major tour of the UK, and will be coming to The Brighton Centre from 25th January to 10th February 2018.  For more information or to book tickets, please click here

War Horse has been seen by over seven million people worldwide and has won 25 awards including the Tony Award for Best Play on Broadway.

Nick Stafford’s adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s remarkable story of courage, loyalty, and friendship, about a young boy called Albert and his horse Joey and set against the backdrop of the First World War, is the most successful play in the National Theatre’s history and features ground-breaking puppetry work by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company which brings breathing, galloping horses to life on stage.

Michael Morpurgo said:

‘After a few months’ rest, out at pasture, Joey, the War Horse and his great team from the National Theatre, will be touring the UK again, from 2017 through to 2018 and the centenary of the end of the First World War, taking their show all over the country, to towns and cities, many of them places War Horse has not been seen before.  I am so pleased this is happening; that so many more people will have the chance to enjoy this unique theatrical event. Steady boy, steady Joey. Trot on!’
