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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book for people who love puppets! If you are intrigued by puppets then you will love this book. Though small it is mighty. The making of the horses is brilliant.. When one sees them on the stage .. The three people manipulating them disappear. Handspring is an amazing group of people.. Great photos as well in this book!
