This evening is press night at the Birmingham Hippodrome for the National Theatre's touring production of War Horse. Joe Darke is playing the role of Topthorn Heart, and Joseph Richardson plays Goose and Schnable.
The National Theatre's epic production is based on the celebrated novel by the Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo. The production has received critical acclaim for its life-size horse puppets from the Handspring Puppet Company, winning an Olivier Award, Evening Standard Theatre Award and London Critics' Circle Theatre Award. In December 2010, War Horse was dubbed 'the theatrical event of the decade' by The Times.
