This is not a cheery musical. It is a sentimental story and is inevitably somewhat cheesy. Fortunately I like cheese. The puppeteers are undoubtedly the stars of this show and receive the greatest applause. The set is minimal and quite stark which is in keeping...More

Excellent production with very little scenery...it's all about the horses and the characters. It's very clever and enjoyable. I've read the book and seen the film but if you haven't, you may get a little lost in the middle. It's an emotional film do take...More

My husband treated me to a visit to see Warhorse before it finished. Thank goodness we did. I have loved and read the book and seen the film so did wonder if a stage show could capture the same magic. Without a doubt! The puppeteers,...More

With only one free night in London for the theatre we chose this over other West End shows because tickets were available, the reviews were unanimously positive, and it would be ending its run soon. We're glad we made this choice. The story is slightly...More

Watched the movie and didn't really like it. But seeing as the tickets only cost £5 (if you sign up for an entry card with the national theatre and are under 25) We thought we'd give it a go. Turned out to be pleasantly surprised!...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!!
