When Gary met Joey!

X Factor’s Gary Barlow met Joey from War Horse at the New London Theatre recently after seeing a performance of the hit West End production.

War Horse is the spellbinding tale of young Albert from Devon who signed up to throw himself into the harrowing ordeals of World War I in order to track down his beloved horse Joey. One begins to forget they are puppets at all and in an astonishing climax an Allied battle tank spills onto the stage with gasps and shrieks from the delighted audience.

War Horse, which has now been seen by over 3.7 million people worldwide, received its world premiere at the National Theatre in October 2007.  Now celebrating its sixth year on the London stage, Nick Stafford’s adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s book continues to play to sell-out houses at the New London Theatre in the West End. Having won multiple awards internationally, War Horse is directed by Marianne Elliott and Tom Morris and designed by Rae Smith, with puppet direction, design and fabrication by Basil Jones and Adrian Kohler for Handspring Puppet Company, lighting by Paule Constable, and movement and horse choreography by Toby Sedgwick, with video design by Leo Warner and Mark Grimmer, songmaker John Tams, music by Adrian Sutton and sound by Christopher Shutt.
