Behind the scenes with the Olivier Audience Award hopefuls
We go backstage with the West End plays and musicals in the running for this year's BBC Radio 2 Audience Award at the 2014 Olivier Awards
Since it was first performed at the National Theatre in 2007, ‘War Horse’ has become a national stage treasure. Based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel, the adapted stage play captures the story’s emotive themes, as well as utilising groundbreaking puppetry techniques. Time Out saddles up for a behind-the-scenes tour with Luke Jerdy, who plays plucky Devonshire lad Albert, for a closer look at the costumes and to meet Curtis Jordan, Owain Gwynn and Ivan Thorley who play the ‘head’, ‘heart’ and ‘hind’ of the play’s equine protagonist, Joey.
