National Tour of War Horse Gallops into Boston

October 10th, 2012 | By Staff

The national tour of War Horse begins performances in Boston on October 10. The Tony-winning play will show at the Boston Opera House through October 21.

War Horse is the story of young Albert’s beloved horse, Joey, who has been enlisted to fight for the English in World War I. Despite not being of age to enlist, Albert embarks on a dangerous mission to find his horse and bring him home. The story is told using elaborate, life-size puppets created by the Handspring Puppet Company.

Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, War Horse won five Tonys in 2010, including Best Direction and Best Play. In 2011, Steven Spielberg directed a big screen version of the story, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
