The team that brought a horse to life
about the making of the National Theatre of Great Britain’s smash hit production War Horse airs on ABC1 on Sunday. Making War Horse is the story of how Michael Morpurgo’s children’s novel became one of the most popular and acclaimed productions in the National Theatre’s history. From its early development in the NT Studio, see how Handspring Puppet Company created the groundbreaking techniques that brought a lifelike horse to the stage. The special goes behind the scenes and into the rehearsal room and features interviews with the cast and creative team who worked on creating a stage classic. War Horse plays the Arts Centre Melbourne ahead of tours to Sydney and Brisbane later this year.
Sunday, 3pm, ABC1; Theatre, Brisbane from Saturday, July 6.
