Missed the sold-out production of War Horse at the National Theatre recently? Well, luckily you’ll have another chance to watch this incredible production as it will be returning to Theatreland in October 2019.

This critically acclaimed show will be performed at the new Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre for a limited 6-week run, as part of its UK and international tour.

War Horse tells the emotional story of one boy’s journey to rescue his faithful horse from the battlefields of the First World War. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel, the story is told through exquisite puppetry that brings the horses to life on stage.

Directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris, the tour has already visited 11 countries and played to nearly 8 million people since its first performance 11 years ago.

Speaking about the announcement Tristan Baker and Oliver Royds of Troubadour Theatres said:

“We are delighted to be welcoming the acclaimed National Theatre production of War Horse to Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre this Autumn. We couldn’t think of a more fitting production to welcome to this state-of-the-art theatre.”

The brand-new Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre is due to open this summer. Seating up to 2,000 people, the venue has been worked on by the award-winning team behind the King’s Cross Theatre. Further productions there are still to be announced.

War Horse will run at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from 18 October – 23 November 2019. Tickets will go on sale from 15 February 2019. There will be an earlier booking period for National Theatre priority members from 29 January 2019, and Troubadour Theatre’s priority members and American Express® Cardmembers can book from 12 February 2019.
