WAR HORSE RETURNS TO BORD GÁIS ENERGY THEATRE 10 – 27 APRIL 2019!

Following 8 record- breaking years in London’s West End and having played in 11 countries around the world to over 7 million people, the National Theatre’s acclaimed play, WAR HORSE will return to Dublin 10 – 27 April 2019 as part of its 10th Anniversary Tour. Tickets go on sale Friday June 29th, 9.00am.

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 journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

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 astonishing life-sized horses by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

War Horse is an unforgettable theatrical event which takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France.

Tickets go on sale Friday June 29th, 9.00am through Ticketmaster Ireland.
