London's National Theatre is broadcasting its original stage production of the international smash hit War Horse, and you can catch a live screening of the production at the Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space. Hailed for its "blast of pure theatrical imagination" by Newsday, this one-of-a-kind theatrical event places the actors on stage with astonishing life-sized horse puppets by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company. These beautiful creations act out the epic story of Joey, a farm horse sold to the cavalry in World War I, and Albert, the boy who trained and bonded with Joey on the farm, who embarks on a dangerous journey to rescue his beloved horse from behind enemy lines. Experience the beauty and drama of the original London production that won five Tony Awards in 2011 and inspired the Academy Award-nominated film by Steven Spielberg. Learn More

What would you sacrifice for your family's love? Your values? Your freedom? Your life?
German-born Umay flees from her oppressive marriage in Istanbul, taking her young son Cem with her. She hopes to find a better life with her family in Berlin, but her unexpected arrival creates intense conflict. Her family is trapped in their conventions. They are torn between their love for her and the traditional values of their community. Ultimately, they decide to return Cem to his father in Turkey. To keep her son, Umay is forced to move again. She finds the inner strength to build a new life for herself and Cem, but her need for her family's love drives her to a series of ill-fated attempts at reconciliation. What Umay doesn't realize is just how deep the wounds are and how dangerous her struggle for self-determination has become.
