War HorseThis moving adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's World War I epic War Horse gets a West End transfer to the New London Theatre after two critically acclaimed sell-out seasons at the National Theatre. When his beloved horse Joey is shipped off to the front lines, Albert, still too young to enlist, embarks on a mission to bring him home. The staging is hugely ambitious, using life-size puppets for the horses, but it's mostly very effective and a scene where a tank looms over the terrified beasts is incredibly intense. Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris' production is a genuine classic, packed with terrifying cavalry charges, gruff humour and moments of rich emotion that are more than capable of reducing entire first-year classes (and their teachers) to tears. Ticket deals for War Horse at the New London Theatre are now available.The National suggests this for children aged 12 and over, but we think it's suitable for kids as young as 10 (so long as you're prepared for them to be completely grief-stricken).

 

About New London Theatre

Although this site has been an entertainment venue since at least the mid-19th century, the New London Theatre only opened its doors in 1973, making it one of the West End's newest theatres. The building is sleek and impressive, with a stunning mirrored facade. More about New London Theatre
