War Horse come galloping back
'An entertainment phenomenon' Telegraph 'Both epic and intimate, absolutely guaranteed to move the heart' Sunday Express 'As a theatrical event, War Horse is unsurpassable' British Theatre Guide As you can see, the critics were as amazed and thrilled by this magnificent production as we were years ago when we first screened the National Theatre Live film of the stage play. We're proud and excited to announce exclusive encore screenings of this breathtaking production on Tuesday April 6 with sessions at 10am and 6pm.
War Horse is based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, which was adapted by Nick Stafford in association with the award-winning Handspring Puppet Company. At the outbreak of World War One, Albert's beloved horse, Joey, is sold to the Cavalry and shipped to France. Though still not old enough to enlist he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. Now seen by more than 8 million people around the world, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage. You won't see any other production like this one - it's truly unique! You are warmly welcomed to join us, and don't forget - you'll get free morning tea at the matinee session at 10am.
Ian Moss not far away
Don't forget that Ian Moss will be playing his long-awaited "Matchbook" 30th Anniversary show on Saturday February 27. Born and raised in Alice Springs, Ian started playing guitar in local teenage bands then moved to Adelaide. Fate intervened when he answered an advertisement for a guitarist in a shop window in 1973, joining the band that was to become a legend in Australia - Cold Chisel. The reputation and status of Cold Chisel steadily grew, mainly on the strength of blistering live shows, and in time their well-crafted recordings became staples of radio airplay. The band eventually split, but Moss, enjoying the status of Australia's best guitarist, carefully evolved into a solo artist of the same calibre and commanding the same respect as Cold Chisel. The setting had been established for Moss to emerge as an important solo artist with his brilliant debut album Matchbook. The rest, as they say, is history.
