Autumn 2013 will see War Horse tour UK and Ireland for the first time. The play, based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, has had massive world-wide success.

First staged at the National Theatre in 2007, it then transferred to the New London Theatre, in the West End, in 2009. War Horse has seen productions transfer to Broadway, Canada and Australia, as well as undergo a screen adaptation from film director Steven Spielberg.

The tour will make its first stop at Plymouth Theatre Royal for a month long run in September 2013. The show will then visit Birmingham Hippodrome, The Lowry in Manchester and Edinburgh Festival Theatre – as well as runs in Southampton, Dublin and Cardiff.

The current production at New London Theatre will continue while the tour gets underway, with bookings still available for the London show until October 2013.
