Adapted by Nick Stafford from Michael Morpurgo's 1982 children's book of the same name, War Horse tells the story of a young boy's beloved horse, Joey, who is commandeered by the army at the outbreak of World War I and is sent to various battlegrounds, where he befriends another horse, Topthorn, and the two animals struggle to survive as they find themselves 'serving' on both sides of the trenches. Joey's owner, Albert, however, cannot forget his best friend, and begins a perilous quest to find the horse and bring him back home to Devon.
The play premiered in October 2007 at the Royal National-Olivier Theatre in London and ran until February 2008, returning for a second 6-month run, later in the year. In March 2009, the play transferred to the West End, to the New London Theatre where, in September that year, the Queen paid her first private visit to a theatre in four years, to see the performance. In 2011, War Horse performed to its millionth audience member. The production is particularly notable for its the incredible horse 'puppets', conceived by the Handspring Puppet Company, and which have won numerous awards for staging, technicalities and design.
In March 2011, the play opened on Broadway, at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre, and received five Tony Awards, including Best Play. Originally scheduled for a short run, the play is still open today, after a rapturous response.
The book/play was adapted into a film by Steven Spielberg, released on Christmas Day 2011.
