Hotels near the War Horse
It began life as a National Theatre Christmas show, but since transferring to the New London Theatre, and then to Broadway, War Horse has become a sure-fire international success. Based on Michael Moruprgo's children's book, it's now booking into 2013.
Seen at the National's Olivier Theatre in 2007 and 2008, War Horse, adapted by Nick Stafford, was created by then-associate directors of the National Theatre Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, with the stunning visual help of South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, creating all the animals in the story as wooden puppets.
With its moving story about a soldier and his horse in the First World War, suffused with aching folk songs, adapted by John Tams, War Horse tells the story of Joey, his young owner Albert and their adventures in a world of catastrophe.
