Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo. Adapted by Nick Stafford.
In association with the award-winning Handspring Puppet Company.
The Lowry is delighted to welcome back our partner company, the National Theatre, with the critically acclaimed War Horse, following a record-breaking, sell-out run over Christmas 2013.
War Horse tells the powerful and uplifting story of young Albert, his beloved horse Joey, and the unimaginableÂ obstacles they overcome both individually and together.
At the heart of the show are life-sized puppets which bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage. Filled with stirring music and some of the most innovative stagecraft of our time, War Horse is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty, and friendship, and an unforgettable theatrical experience.
