(3.2) The National Theatre’s original stage production of ‘War Horse’ will be broadcast live from London’s West End to cinemas including the Avon — two shows Thursday, one Sunday.
Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, War Horse takes audiences on an extraordinary journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France. Filled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.
2pm & 7pm, Thursday, February 27/12:30pm, Sunday, March 2, Avon Cinema, 260 Thayer Street
