Summary This second edition of The Horse's Mouth follows the production of War Horse, a play adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's novel, from early concept workshops to one of the most beguiling and original plays ever staged by the National Theatre, the actors working with magnificent, life-sized puppets to take the audience on a gripping journey through history. The Horse's Mouth is a fascinating, behind-the-scenes story of how this acclaimed and highly technical piece of theatre was achieved. In his new Introduction, Mervyn Millar describes how 'the journey from improbable idea to long-running show has seen our production change. '
