War Horse is Bristol’s most successful play

War Horse has become the most successful play in Bristol’s history.

Bristol Old Vic director Tom Morris, who originally directed the play in London, said: “I am thrilled that Bristol audiences have taken War Horse so powerfully to their hearts.

Mr Morpurgo said: “I am not at all surprised that War Horse has broken all records at the Hippodrome. The cast and crew have been simply outstanding wherever they have gone on their tour, from Salford to Plymouth, from Dublin to Cape Town. Records have been broken everywhere, standing ovations everywhere.”

Hannah Kester, deputy general manager of the Bristol Hippodrome, added: “It has been a privilege to have The National Theatre’s production of War Horse at The Bristol Hippodrome for the past five weeks. The whole cast and crew have been a delight to work with and we will be very sad to see the show go on Saturday.”
