- In stock online
The subject of this new edition is the Tony Award-winning play, War Horse, currently a smash hit on Broadway and the West End. The beloved play that was recently adapted into a Steven Spielberg film is also enjoying highly-anticipated productions in Toronto and Australia, and will embark on a U.S. tour in June 2012 and a U.K. tour in fall of 2013.
The Horse's Mouth follows the production of War Horse, as adapted from Michael Morpurgo's novel, from early concept workshops to a beguiling and original play incorporating actors working with life-sized puppets to take the audience on a gripping journey through history. The Horse's Mouth is a fascinating, illustrated behind-the-scenes look at how this acclaimed and highly technical piece of theatre was achieved.

"An excellent publication... At all times, Millar's writing is clear, pacy and illuminating and the illustrations - which include four pages of color photographs - are fabulous. Don't bother to see the film version: spend your money on this lovely book." -- Aleks Sierz
