last call for war horse tickets
The spectacular First World War drama War Horse is playing to packed houses in Canterbury.
Michael Morpurgo’s tale of courage and friendship features the puppet of Joey the horse – built of steel, leather and aircraft cables.
Morpurgo began writing War Horse while teaching at Wickhambreaux Primary School.
It tells the story of Albert, whose father sells his horse Joey to the British cavalry.
Unable to forget his friend, Albert searches for him in the battlefields to bring him home.
War Horse has been seen by more than seven million people worldwide and won 25 awards since it opened in 2007.
The show is at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury until Saturday, October 14.
There is limited availability, though, so contact the theatre first at marlowetheatre.com or call 01227 787787.
