One of London’s most popular theatre productions has announced that it is to extend its booking period until autumn 2014, giving visitors to the city a chance to see a performance.
War Horse, which originally opened at the Olivier NT in October 2007 before transferring to the New London Theatre in the West End in 2009, will now be running until October 25th next year.
Based on the famous novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, the spectacular show has gone on to wow crowds with its captivating storyline and breathtaking props and special effects.
Popular demand has now seen the production extend its run at the venue, which can be found in Drury Lane.
Located close to a number of central London tube stations including Covent Garden and Leicester Square, the New London Theatre is one of the capital’s premier live entertainment arenas and is within walking distance of many of the city’s most popular attractions.
War Horse tells the story of Joey, a horse belonging to a young boy named Albert, who is then separated from his owner and enlisted in the cavalry at the outbreak of World War I.
After serving in France, Joey finds himself at the centre of a storm that sees him fight for both sides while Albert embarks on his own journey to try and track his beloved horse down and bring him home.
Having received critical acclaim, the show has been reproduced in a number of countries around the world, although anyone who wants to see the original and best production can do so by taking a trip to London.
The incredible story was also made into a film in 2011, and went on to receive no fewer than six Oscar nominations, which should give some idea of just how powerful this amazing tale is.
