Members of the UK Tour cast of War Horse gave an exclusive performance at Broughton House, a care home for ex-military service men and women, with a surprise visit from the star of the show Joey (on Tue 17 December).
Broughton House is a 50 bed care home and charity in Salford for elderly residents who have war related conditions and complex needs, such as traumatic amputations, dementia and other physical and mental health issues. Opened in 1916 in Salford, Broughton House has cared for 8,000 ex-army or merchant navy servicemen and women.
Tonight marks the 500th performance of the North American Tour of #WarHorse. Cheers to all that have gotten us here and Congratulations to the 23 of us still standing. @WarHorseOnstage #tourlife #theater #puppetry (at Shea’s Performing Arts Center)
