Michael Morpurgo”s WAR HORSE is the internationally acclaimed children’s book that tells the story of World War I as seen through the eyes of a horse named Joey, and Albert, the boy who loves him. Published in 1982m WAR HORSE begins in England, where Joeys is sold to the cavalry by Albert’s hard-up father, leaving Albert heartbroken, but determined to get his horse back. Morpurgo’s compelling tale follows Joey and Albert from separation to reunion on an incredible journey filled with peril, heartache, hope and humanity.
In October 2007, WAR HORSE was brought to life on the stage at London’s National Theatre, using larger than real life puppets for the horses, a brilliant collaboration by the Handspring Puppet Company and directores Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris. The production moved to the West End in 2009, and it opened in New York City in April 2011 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, WAR HORSE also attracted the attention of acclaimed director Steven Spielberg whose live action film WAR HORSE, filmed entirely in England, which opened Christmas Day, 2011.
From book to stage to film, and now honored as a Breyer portrait model, what makes WAR HORSE unforgettable is the utter humanity that a horse Joey, rekindles in the hearts of the war torn people he meets along his incredible journey.
