War Horse rides into Bradford
12:27pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
Joey, the spectacular horse puppet from the National Theatre’s internationally acclaimed production, made a special appearance at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford this morning.
The life-size puppet was brought to the city in advance of the Yorkshire premiere of War Horse in the Spring of 2014.
War Horse, adapted from Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling novel, is the story of a young boy named Albert and his beloved horse Joey. The show features ground-breaking puppetry work by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, which brings breathing and galloping horses to life on stage.
War Horse, which has been seen by over 4 million people world-wide, makes its Yorkshire debut at the Alhambra from May 26 to June 14, 2014.
