About War Horse - Cardiff

The Story

War Horse begins on a farm in rural Devon when Ted Narracott buys a foal at auction. His young son Albert forms a close bond with the horse and names him Joey. With the outbreak of the First World War, Joey is sold to the army, much to Albert’s distress. As a cavalry horse, Joey participates in a disastrous battle where his rider is killed and Joey is captured by the Germans. He is then put to work as a draft horse, pulling artillery and ambulances. The full horror of the First World War is brought vividly to life through Joey’s adventures on the battlefields of France before an emotional reunion with Albert concludes the drama.
