War Horse – Theatre Royal Plymouth

August 29 - September 15

The theatrical phenomenon that is War Horse arrives in Plymouth this August and September. If you’re watching the production, don’t forget that the Duke of Cornwall Hotel is only a short walk from the theatre. It’s the ideal venue for an overnight stay after the show – or a fine dining meal before it. The following information about War Horse is provided by Theatre Royal Plymouth.

Following 8 record breaking years in London’s West End and having played in 11 countries around the world to over 7 million people, the National Theatre’s acclaimed play War Horse will tour the UK from September 2017.

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted by Nick Stafford, 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.
