War Horse Comes To Sussex

War Horse Comes To Sussex

The National Theatre’s acclaimed production of War Horse embarks on a major tour of the UK, and the show comes to The Brighton Centre from Thursday, January 25 to Saturday, February 10 2018.

The nationwide tour of War Horse coincides with the centenary commemorations of the end of the First World War and it follows the production’s enormously successful tour
of the UK and the Republic of Ireland in 2013-2014.

War Horse, which has been seen by more than seven million people worldwide, has won 25 awards including the Tony Award for Best Play on Broadway. Directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, Nick Stafford’s adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s remarkable story of courage, loyalty, and friendship, about a boy called Albert and his horse Joey, set against the backdrop of the First World War, it is the most successful play in the National Theatre’s history. It features ground-breaking puppetry by Handspring Puppet Company, which brings breathing, galloping horses to life on stage.

Michael Morpurgo, said: “After a few months rest, out at pasture, Joey, the War Horse and his great team from the National Theatre, will be touring the UK again, from 2017 through to 2018 and the centenary of the end of the First World War, taking their show all over the country, to towns and cities, many of them places War Horse has not been seen before. I am so pleased this is happening; that so many more people will have the chance to enjoy this unique theatrical event.”
