The phenomenal international theatre hit War Horse is playing at the theatre Carré with an all-Dutch cast. War Horse recounts the powerfully moving story of a boy and his horse, against the backdrop of the First World War. When Albert’s horse Joey is sold to be sent into battle, he follows him and risks his life in the hope they will once again be reunited.
In the midst of the thrilling action on the battlefield, the life-size horses, developed by the famous Handspring Puppet Company, take the limelight. Brought to life on stage by the incomparable puppeteers, you would swear they were made of flesh and blood: noble animals which win our hearts and make us realize the madness of war.
