Thank you War Horse for taking this 'Must See' show on tour, I saw it in Bristol; a truly enchanting experience. The simplicity and honesty of the story is brought vividly to life by the excellent cast. An incredible take on real life & relationships...More

An amazing show which genuinely challenges emotions. Take a tissue! If you can't make the London production, Joey's on tour to mark the centenary of the end of the WW1. I thought the show so moving, have just bought tickets for the Brighton Centre in...More

I've actually seen this play twice. The first time, we didn't have a detailed expectation & we were overwhelmed by the whole theatrical experience. To say that the horses are 'puppets' doesn't begin to express how amazing they are. Even with the puppeteers in full...More

Went to see this spectacular show last night. It's a phenomenon. The connection between man and horse is depicted with strength and depth that cannot fail to impress and stir the emotions. A must see. 🐴🐎

Words don't really describe this show. It was simply brilliant. My fiancée and I have seen many shows in London and this is right up there with the best (probably the best). You won't be disappointed.

This show is utterly amazing, the horse is so life like and moves like a real horse. A factual insight into the life of the horse cavalry in the Second World War. One of my favourite west end shows

Kinky boots if it is still on! Monty python if you know their work, great stage adaptation of the film. There are literally hundreds of plays to see, if you want great drama, war horse - unbelievable stage production. Enjoy!!
