At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert's beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped to France. He's soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary odyssey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man's land.

Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. The National's epic is based on War Horse, the celebrated novel by the Children's Laureate (2003-05) Michael Morpurgo . Actors working with magnificent, life-sized puppets by the internationally renowned Handspring Puppet Company lead us on a gripping journey through history.

The New London Theatre is a West End theatre located on the corners of Drury Lane and Parker Street in Covent Garden, in the City of Westminster.

Designed by Paul Tvrtkovic, it officially opened on January 2, 1973 with a production of The Unknown Soldier and His Wife starring Peter Ustinov. Between 1981 and 2002 it was home to the musical Cats, during which time it became the longest running musical in West End history.

It also hosted the 1977 BBC Sports Personality of the Year and the Masters snooker between 1976 and 1978.

Between 2003 and 2005 the theatre hosted Bill Kenwright's revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. This closed after a two and a half year run on 3 September 2005. Currently, the venues is playing host to the London transfer of the hit off-Broadway production, Blue Man Group, which will close in July 2007, to make way for "Never Forget", a musical based on the songs of Take That.
