Details

The National Theatre present War Horse.

The National Theatre's acclaimed play, based on Michael Morpurgo's novel.

An unforgettable theatrical event.

Following eight record-breaking years in London’s West End and having played to audiences in 10 countries around the world, War Horse is coming to Canterbury.

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.

On our blog, you can read about how the puppet horses are brought to life, and also read about Michael Morpurgo’s Canterbury connections.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo.
Adapted by Nick Stafford.
In association with the award-winning Handspring Puppet Company.



War Horse at The Marlowe is sponsored by the Port Of Dover.
