Four-page pre­view of the big events of the next seven days

Hav­ing been per­formed in 11 coun­tries to over seven mil­lion peo­ple, War Horse re­turns 11 years af­ter its de­but at Lon­don’s Na­tional The­atre to mark the re­cent cen­te­nary of Ar­mistice Day.

This week be­gins its first-ever run in Glas­gow, with a 34-strong cast and ex­tra­or­di­nary life-sized horses per­form­ing Nick Stafford’s adap­ta­tion of Michael Mor­purgo’s cel­e­brated novel about a boy and his beloved horse Joey who is sold to the cav­alry.

Glas­gow-born Scott Miller, who re­cently grad­u­ated from the Lon­don Acad­emy of Mu­sic and Dra­matic Art, plays the cen­tral role of Al­bert Nar­ra­cott and says he “can’t wait to bring this beau­ti­ful show to my city”.
