WAR HORSE: THE FINAL FAREWELL

Prior to the final performance of War Horse at the New London Theatre, members of the creative team reunite to talk about how they brought a little-known children’s novel of a boy and his horse to the stage, and its eight-year journey to becoming both the National Theatre’s most successful show and an international phenomenon.

Author Michael Morpurgo is joined onstage by members of the original creative team, including Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler from South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, co-directors Tom Morris andMarianne Elliott, designer Rae Smith, composer Adrian Sutton, songmaker John Tams and director of movement and horse choreography Toby Sedgwick. The event will be chaired by former NT Executive Director, Nick Starr.
