Giddy-up! War Horse has returned to the London stage at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre!
Perhaps you thought you’d never live to see the day, but the day certainly has come for War Horse to dash right back onto the London theatre stage! Having first run at the National Theatre back in 2007 before transferring to the New London Theatre for a 7-year run, War Horse is locked, cocked and ready to rock!
Directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, this multi-award-winning play based on the bestselling novel by Michael Morpurgo is set to return to London this autumn at an all-new venue near Wembley Stadium! The very limited run at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, which was set up by the same team who brought you the King's Cross Theatre, marks just one leg of the new UK and international War Horse tour.
What makes War Horse so fantastic?
War Horse is such a spectacular play that even the Royal Family endorses it. Famous for its jaw-dropping puppetry from South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, War Horse never ceases to amaze after all these years. In fact, the show's puppetry is so mesmerising that even the Queen of England couldn't help but fall in love with Joey the horse, a puppet that has performed for HRH on a number of occasions. How can you resist a play that boasts the 'Royal Seal of Approval'?
Aside from its astonishing special effects and life-sized equestrian puppetry, War Horse is also filled with emotionally provocative music and songs that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish!
The critically acclaimed National Theatre production, which has won both Olivier Awards and Tony Awards on Broadway, played in London's West End for a total of 8 years. It eventually became an international phenomenon when it was staged in 11 countries across the globe and has now been seen by a whopping 7 million people. The numbers don't lie!
What is the War Horse play about?
At the dawn of the First World War, Albert's beloved horse Joey is sold to the cavalry and whisked off to France. Albert soon gets caught in the middle of bloody battles and devastating crossfire and he can't seem to forget his four-legged companion. While not yet old enough to enlist into the armed forces, Albert is led by destiny on an unforgettable quest to find and bring back Joey.
War Horse is a touching and highly imaginative drama that will take you on an unforgettable journey through World War I. Featuring a gripping story of a boy who loves his pet horse and a fabulous cast of actors who work to bring the life-sized puppets to life, War Horse is absolutely unmissable!

London Theatre Review: War Horse at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre
I remember when War Horse first came to the stage twelve years ago. Eleven year old me read about it in ‘Pony’ Magazine and immediately wanted to go. Well, yesterday I finally got there. Brought back for a limited run at Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, War Horse makes great use of the huge space. It is one of the most unique pieces of theatre I have ever seen. The horses are huge puppets manned by three people each and the effect is amazingly believable.
