War Horse

War Horse @ The Bord Gais Energy Theatre
26th March 2014 - 26th April 2014

We went to see a War Horse preview in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre yesterday afternoon and I must say it was fantastic. We are very excited to see the full show when it arrives here in Dublin in March.

The play, based on the celebrated novel by Michael Morpurgo, centres around the love of a boy for his horse against the background of World War I. The main feature in the play is the handmade, life-size horse puppet, Joey which is operated by three puppeteers. The puppetry in the show is amazing. You completely forget that the animal is not real and get lost in the story and the characters of this great play. "Truly magnificent creations by the Handspring Puppet Company." The Daily Telepgraph.

The first stage production of War Horse was in London in 2007 and it has been a roaring success since day one. This fantastic play comes to Ireland for the first time ever in March 2014.

Having seen the short snippet of what to expect in March, we are really looking forward to seeing the play in full.

We have War Horse Theatre Packages available for you to avail of. Why not make a night of it and stay over night in the Grand Canal Hotel (8 minute walk from the Theatre), have a Pre-Theatre Meal the night of the show and a Full Irish Breakfast the next morning............and we have Free Car Parking!
