War Horse gets its NT Live TODAY (Thursday 27 February 2014)


War Horse gets its NT Live today and it will be broadcast live from London's West End into cinemas across the UK and around the world.

Cut and pasted from the NT Live website:

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.

The trailer is here:

As per usual, I will be watching at my local NT Live cinema, the Brixton Ritzy.


Finally, I have written an in-depth feature on NT Live for Vada Magazine which can be found in the two following places:
