National Theatre Live: War Horse

Wed, 11/16/2016 - 12:27pm -- WCVE

The Modlin Center for the Arts at the University of Richmond is pleased to present National Theatre Live’s War Horse on Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. at Camp Concert Hall in Booker Hall of Music. 88.9 WCVE is proud to be a Community Partner of this special presentation.

National Theatre Live’s Encore Series is brining this powerful story based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo to the Richmond area for a limited time. Adapted by Nick Staford, War Horse is the story of a young boy named Albert and his horse, Joey, who has been requisitioned to fight for the British army in the first World War. The story follows the horse Joey as he serves on both sides, and Albert’s quest to find him and bring him home.

Since War Horse’s inaugural performance in 2007, it has become an international sensation. The show features the puppetry of South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, which brings to life massive galloping horses on stage.
