War Horse Gallops Onto The Mainstage At Proctors

    The National Theatre of Great Britain’s production of War Horse gallops onto the mainstage at Proctors in Schenectady, NY tonight at 7:30.

Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, War Horse is a moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and magnificent artistry.

As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home.

South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company brings breathing, galloping, full-scale horses to life on the stage — their flanks, hides and sinews built of steel, leather and aircraft cables.
