New cast to take the stage in award-winning War Horse
Date Posted: 02/11/11
Award-winning production War Horse will welcome a new cast later this month, with Alex Avery taking on the role of Captain Nicholls.
From Wednesday November 16th he will be joined by Joshua Blake (John Greig), Pascale Burgess (Paulette), Richard Cant (Priest/Friedrich Muller) and Sam Clark (Joey Hind).
The production, which has been a favourite among those booking London theatre breaks since it started in the capital, is currently taking bookings until February 2013.
Earlier this year it won five Tony Awards, including prizes for Best Play, Best Scenic Design, Best Lighting and Best Sound Design, while the Handspring Puppet Company was also given a Special Tony Award for its contribution to the production.
Recently, talking about his favourite work, writer Michael Morpurgo told the Guardian: "I'm very fond of the book, and it is my wife's favourite – she really loves horses, and she likes the fact that its origins lie in Devon, in the place where we live."
