WAR Horse will gallop into town next month. National Theatre Live will broadcast the international show stopper live from London’s West End to cinemas around the world on February 27, including St Helens Cineworld.
Since its first performance at the National Theatre in 2007, War Horse has become an international smash hit. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, War Horse takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France.
Filled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness.
At its heart are astonishing lifesized puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.
Cineworld showings are on Thursdays February 27 and March 13, Tuesday, March 18 (all starting at 7pm) and Saturday, March 22, 2.30pm.
