In honour of Rememberance Day, NT Live proudly presents War Horse. Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted by Nick Stafford, War Horse has delighted millions of people around the world on stage since it was first performed at the National Theatre in 2007.

This will be the first time since its original broadcast in 2014 that War Horse will be able to be viewed on cinema screens. Telling the story of young Albert and his beloved horse Joey who, at the outbreak of World War One, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Though still not old enough to enlist, Albert embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

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.

This is not a live broadcast but was filmed in front of a live audience.


Please note: wearing a face covering (mask or visor) is now mandatory throughout the building, except when eating or drinking.
You're welcome to attend if you are exempt, just let our staff know on arrival.
