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.

"This story - the story of making the first show - is our record of how uncertain, optimistic, idealistic and naive we felt back then. It's the spark underneath each new version and each fresh company who bring the fuel and the heat to inspire every production of War Horse." -- Mervyn Millar

"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

"A story of how an astonishing piece of theatre came about" - The Stage
