 Watch the War Horse trailer in HD: 

The Lowry is absolutely delighted to welcome our partner company, the National Theatre, with the internationally acclaimed War Horse, which remains a huge success in London’s West End.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse tells the powerful and uplifting story of young Albert, his beloved horse Joey, and the unimaginable obstacles they overcome both individually and together.

Hailed by Time Magazine as ‘a landmark theatre event', War Horse is an unforgettable experience, filled with stirring music and songs. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets by South Africa's award-winning Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.
