Since its debut performance at the National Theatre in 2007, War Horse has become an international smash hit, capturing the imagination of millions of people around the world.

Now this landmark production has been digitally captured live in high definition in London’s West End for screening in cinemas around the world.

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.

07-photo-of-2011-war-horse-west-end-cast-by-brinkhoff-mogenburgFilled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative story of a young horse taken from its devoted owner and shipped to France to serve in the army is a show of phenomenal inventiveness.

At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

War Horse won five Tony awards, and continues to capture hearts throughout the world.

The National Theatre’s production of War Horse screens at Palace Byron Bay Cinema at 1.15pm on Saturday March 8 and Sunday March 9, and 11.15am on Monday March 10 and Wednesday March 12. Tickets $23–$25.
