-Why did you write about war?
-Because I grew up after the WW2 and this affected me so I thought I had to do it, and I also wanted to show the universal suffering of war.
-Why did you decide to write War Horse from and Animal´s point of view?
-Because many books have been written from a human being´s point of view so I decided to do it from a neutral position so a horse would be perfect.

-Yes, many times. But, the play changes according to the time you are going through.
