‘War Horse’, the Tony Award winning and compelling drama whose film adaptation also earned an Academy Award nod, comes to Dallas for a two-week run at the Winspear Opera House of the AT&T Performing Arts Center from September 12 to 23, 2012.
‘War Horse’ is a powerful and moving play set in England at the time of World War I. With the help of life-size, lifelike, strong and sturdy horse puppets that can carry a rider, all of which were crafted by the Handspring Puppet Company of South Africa, the production is able to tell the touching story between Albert and his beloved horse Joey, who were separated when Joey is sold to the cavalry as a pawn for war. Despite the restrictions of age and the real perils and threats that await him, young Albert goes on a dangerous mission amidst the devastating and depressing aftermath of war to find his horse and bring him home, who ends up in a deserted land after having seen the bloody action first-hand. The performance running time is 2 hours and 40 minutes with 1 intermission.
