The National Theatre’s acclaimed production of War Horse makes its highly anticipated return to the Liverpool Empire in 2025, marking the theatre’s centenary year.

Since its last appearance at the Liverpool Empire in 2019, War Horse has continued to captivate audiences worldwide with its powerful storytelling and innovative stagecraft.

Adapted by Nick Stafford from Michael Morpurgo’s beloved novel and directed by Tom Morris, this extraordinary drama transports audiences from the idyllic countryside of rural Devon to the harrowing trenches of First World War France.

At the outbreak of World War One, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped 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. Albert, who remained on his parents’ Devon farm, cannot forget Joey.

Though still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find Joey and bring him home.

Central to the production are the breathtaking life-sized horse puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, whose artistry brings these majestic creatures to life with astonishing realism.

This unforgettable experience is set to be a highlight of Liverpool Empire’s centenary celebrations, promising to leave audiences moved and inspired.
