At the start of World War I, a boy's beloved horse is sold to the cavalry and experiences the horrors of war, somehow managing to survive while serving on both sides. But the boy, too young to enlist, hasn't forgotten about his horse and sets off on a perilous journey to find him and bring him home.
War Horse uses complex mechanics to create the puppets which are the horses in this show, making them come alive before your eyes.
