Book War Horse Tickets at the New London Theatre, London

War Horse, the international hit play based on Michael Morpurgo's beloved novel brings life-sized puppet horses to vivid life on stage.

About War Horse

WAR HORSE is a thrilling and spectacular production based on the celebrated novel by Michael Morpurgo. Staged at the New London Theatre.

The First World War is the backdrop for WAR HORSE, a tale of bravery, loyalty, and the extraordinary bond between a young recruit and his horse.

Actors, working with astonishing life-sized puppets by the internationally renowned Handspring Puppet Company, take audiences on an unforgettable journey through history.

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. Thus begins the incredible story of War Horse.

Albert is soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land.

But he cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to the trenches to find him and bring him home.

Actors, working with astonishing, life-sized puppets, lead us on this emotionally-charged journey through history. The War Horse play is something you will never forget! Some of the most incredible staging ever seen in London's West End, War Horse really doesn't disappoint.

War Horse is winner of Olivier, Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Awards. It is one of the most popular plays to be staged at the New London Theatre on Drury Lane.

War Horse tickets are extremely popular so we recommend you book tickets for War Horse today, while you can!
