WAR HORSE RETURNS TO AUSTRALIA IN 2020

War Horse will return to Australia in 2020. With seasons at Regent Theatre, Melbourne from 10 January; Lyric Theatre, Sydney from 15 February; and Crown Theatre, Perth from 24 March, Australians on both sides of the country get the chance to experience the show.

Michael Morpurgo said: “War Horse is galloping back to Australia. War Horse is not my story. It is a story of the horses and men who went from all over the world to the First World War. It happens to be set in Devon in England, because that is where I live, where some 40 years ago I met an old man in the pub in my village who had been a young cavalry soldier in that terrible war.

“Stories know no barriers. Distance does not matter. History does matter. This is a story of us, of all of us. This is why I am so so pleased that the National Theatre’s uniquely wonderful play of War Horse is soon to be seen again in Australia. Joey belongs with you, as much as he does to us. He’s that horse, that one horse, that came home.”
