‘Beautiful and heart-touching theatre’
‘A thrilling piece of theatre’
The Northern Echo
Michael Morpurgo said: ‘After a few months rest, out at pasture, Joey, the War Horse and his great team from the National Theatre, is touring the UK again, through to 2019 and during the centenary of the end of the First World War, taking their show all over the country, to towns and cities, many of them places War Horse has not been seen before. I am so pleased this is happening; that so many more people will have the chance to enjoy this unique theatrical event. Steady boy, steady Joey. Trot on!'
Ben Phillips, General Manager, Sunderland Empire said: “It was a great honour to host the North East debut and successful run of War Horse in 2014. We are absolutely delighted that this critically acclaimed production will grace our stage once more in 2019, giving audiences another opportunity to see this poignant and highly charged production on tour.”
