Going to see War Horse, the play, in London next Friday. I loved the film, definitely a two hankie one! Has anyone seen the play, and how do you think it compares to the film?

My sister and bro-in-law saw the play, and loved it. I don't think that they saw the film though.

I bought my oldest grandson the book a few years ago, don't know if he read it as didn't hear back what he thought about it.

I have seen the play. It is very different to the movie, far stronger dramatically. You will be a changed person afterwards.

fwiw my GF was responsible for a large number of war horses on the western front. He never really got over the fate of the animals, though he did teach me to ride - army style.

Somewhere in the depths of the radio 4 archives there is a series about the war horses of the great war but I have had no luck in finding it.
