ARMISTICE DAY MARKED

On 11th November, we remembered the human and animal lives lost on all sides between 1914 – 1918 during the First World War, with a special commemorative performance of War Horse. The performance was opened by a speech from War Horse author, Michael Morpurgo, and ended with a minute of bell ringing from cast members around the auditorium and a poppy drop. 

Speaking to the Evening Standard ahead of the performance, Thomas Dennis, who plays Albert said although it would be his 400th appearance in the show, it was set to be an emotional night. He said it promised to be a “very different” performance because of the audience and the significance of the date.

“Obviously we should remember those who died all the time,” he added. “It’s not about a select date where we all go, ‘Oh let’s remember them’. I think what’s important about Sunday is it marks the end of four years of serious remembrance of a specific period and a specific conflict.
