Saw this show in Woking. Had been told it would be fantastic but it surpassed my expectations. Even my 9 year old was gripped and thoroughly enjoyed it. Despite the very emotive subject matter, it wasn't overly upsetting and therefore remained enjoyable. Even some very...More

Saw War Horse in Festival Theatre in Edinburgh, fantastic production with amazing work by the puppeteers , it was hard to believe the horses weren’t real! Really gripping and moving story brilliantly produced.The theatre itself was very nice with a excellent sound system . Bill

Took my mother to see warhorse for a birthday treat We had great seats and were excited about seeing the show. Unfortunately we did not enjoy it at all. No real props on stage, really dull and boring for us. There's a cloud like screen...More

We splurged and bought really good seats for this show (although in retrospect, no seat in the theater would really be bad), and we loved the experience. There was a kids' school group there to see the show, as well, and they were a fun...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

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!!
