Captivating over 7 million people while touring eleven countries, rewarded with a multitude of award nominations and wins covering virtually all aspects of the production, Bristol is on the itinerary for the second national tour of Nick Stafford’s hugely successful stage adaptation of war time drama War Horse. When the town drunk Ted buys a horse at auction in order to spite his brother, his son Albert forms a bond with the horse, who he names Joey. But Albert is crushed when the outbreak of World War I means the animal must be donated to the cause, and lies about his age in order to enlist in the army. Will Albert and Joey both make it back safely to Devon at the end of the war? 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 life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring galloping and charging horses to life on stage. For tickets, visit atgtickets.com.
