About War Horse

Following 8 record breaking years in London’s West End, having played to audiences in 10 countries around the world and a sell-out 2014 run in Edinburgh, the National Theatre’s acclaimed play War Horse returns to Edinburgh in 2018.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness.At its heart are astonishing life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

War Horse is an unforgettable theatrical event which takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France.
