Reasons for trip

War Horse theatre review (London) I have heard so many good things about this show that it’s been on my wish list for the last five years. I finally made the effort to secure a ticket and was blown away by the sheer theatricality of the event. Theatre is a magical place where imagination quickly replaces reality so within minutes of Joey the foal appearing on stage, I was mesmerised. Although Joey is no more than a puppet controlled by three girls, everyone in the New London Theatre believed that he was a real horse. Later when Joey appears as a full grown stallion and reared up on his hind legs, I was awe-struck at such an amazing sight. I was sitting in the third row, and so close to the action, that Joey seemed to be twenty feet tall! Joey was now controlled by three men who were just brilliant at conveying Joey’s heart and soul. Joey, of course, goes to war and this is where the story begins. He fights, he swaps sides, he gets hurt, and we, the audience believe everything thanks to brilliant acting, wonderful storytelling, and fabulous staging. When the show ends, everyone in the audience was on their feet, with tears pouring down their face. If you love theatre, you must see War Horse, and as it’s touring in 2013, you’ve no reason not to. See it, you’ll love it!
