The National Theatre's smash-hit production of War Horse is set to be revived in London, playing at the brand new Troubadour Theatre in Wembley Park from 18th October to 23rd November 2019. Tickets go on sale on Friday 15th February.
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 odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.
War Horse ran at the New London Theatre in the West End from 23rd March 2009 to 12th March 2016, and was revived in the Lyttelton at the National Theatre in late 2018.
