National Theatre Live presents

War Horse

Recorded live in London’s West End in 2014

Based on the ​beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, adapted by Nick Stafford 
in association with ​the
award-winning Handspring Puppet Company
This critically acclaimed and international smash-hit play comes to the Merlin for the first time this November to mark Remembrance Day. 
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.
