#WarHorse - 4*/5. Emotional anniversary tour production, with strong performances by @TheThomasDennis, @beckers_best Bob Fox and @handspringcc. Acoustics tricky at times, but almost full standing ovation (and tears!). @NationalTheatre @captheatres

The puppeteers of @WarHorseOnStage rightly deserve their plaudits as do the actors playing those on the homefront or at the front who enable the audience to see the pain of ordinary men facing impossible choices like @beckers_best

@beckers_best your performance was brilliant in conveying the pain of a man out of place and thorn between duty and family - impressive

@beckers_best You were fabulous! So well done...

@beckers_best You were fantastic! Bravo! ❤️ you made a drama students dreams come alive on stage 🎭

@beckers_best What a fantastic, moving production! Second time we’ve seen it and even better second time around. Thank you @WarHorseOnStage & you were excellent too!

Check out my review for @WarHorseOnStage @captheatres for @LoveBooksGroup!

Strongly recommend!! ~ Festival Theatre until Sat 12th May ~ Incredible, creative and moving!

About | Press

CV

Although growing up to large extent in England, Peter Becker first emerges on the stage at age 15 in Germany at the renowned Bad Hersfeld theatre festival.
At the same time he begins building a background in journalism, rising to editor of the ‘Hersfelder Zeitung’ newspaper’s weekly youth page and managing content for a radio station.
After completing his formal education, he moves to Berlin, where he becomes a reputable production assistant and casting director for commercials and music videos.

In 2002 he begins studying at the prestigious Academy of Dramatic Arts ‘Ernst Busch’ in Berlin. During this time the film and theatre industry begins to recognize his talents and he is recruited for his first film roles (including ‘Der Untergang der Pamir’, directed by Kaspar Heidelbach), and theatre engagements (at Deutsches Theater Berlin and Thalia Theater Hamburg).
The short film ‘Es geht uns gut | We’re fine’ by Thomas Stuber, on which he worked both as lead actor as well as co-author, wins the Advancement Award of the film industry of Baden-Wuerttemberg in 2006 and receives the title “valuable” by the Film Review Board Wiesbaden in 2007.
In addition to working in front of the camera (including ‘Mission to murder Hitler’, ‘Until Nothing Remains’, ‘Unknown’) he starts utilizing his wit to write scripts and produce content.
From 2006 to 2007, Peter is a cast member at Volkstheater in Vienna, where he meets director Nuran David Calis, with whom he collaborates again in 2008 at the Schauspielhaus Cologne.
In 2009, he returns to Berlin, and performs under the direction of Nurkan Erpulat as well as numerous productions at Ballhaus Naunynstrasse and Heimathafen Neukölln.

In addition to his work as an actor, Peter Becker hosts live events such as the ‘Achtung Berlin!’ Film Festival, performs readings (at Literaturhaus Berlin amongst others), works as a voice-over artist (including Deutschlandradio Kultur, ARTE, ARD, ZDF etc.) and coaches business professionals on engagement and presentation techniques.

In 2017 he makes his successful international theatre debut as ‘Friedrich Müller’ in the National Theatre’s UK tour of ‘War Horse’

Reviews

War Horse | Royal National Theatre

‘A special mention must be given to Peter Becker, who shone in the role of Friedrich Müller. There was a beautiful vulnerability to his character, and a varied emotional range, which flourished as the story progressed.’

Cherwell

‘The lovable German Captain Friedrich Muller, played by the incredible Peter Becker gave an emotive and incredibly likable performance of a man missing his daughter, wanting to get away from the bloodshed and violence of the Front.’

On the Beat

‘Peter Becker as the war-tormented Friedrich Müller, bringing Morpurgo’s vision of humanism on either side of No Man’s Land to the fore.’

 Swindon Advertiser

‘I particularly enjoyed the fantastic performance given by Peter Becker as Friedrich Muller, a disillusioned and psychologically damaged captain in the German army.’

Daily Info Oxford

‘Outstanding is Peter Becker as Friedrich, a German officer sick of war, who is prepared to risk a great deal to protect the captured Joey and his horse companion, Topthorn.’

StageTalk Magazine

‘The stand-out (in terms of character and performance) is German soldier Friedrich Muller, played by Peter Becker. When Joey and another horse, Topthorne, fall into his hands, Muller gives the ‘enemy’ a humanity often missing from material covering either world war, by dedicating his war to caring for them while he waits for the time he is able to go home to his wife and daughter.’

The Void

‘Superb too is Peter Becker as Friedrich Muller, the German equine expert who shows the human face of the ‘enemy’ at war and underlines the fact that history is only ever written by winners. Becker’s teetering-on-the-edge-of-sanity portrayal is quite marvellous and contradicts joyously with preconceptions.’

Chris High Reviews

‘Special mentions are also deserved for Peter Becker, who plays Friedrich Müller, Thomas Dennis, who plays Albert Narracott and the host of puppeteers and actors who operate the horses.’

Broadway World

‘Friedrich, Peter Becker delivers a compelling performance as a tormented man, driven to the brink by the ceaseless acts of war, and brought back by a young girl.  Together with Joëlle Brabban as the kind and innocent Emilie, these (…) characters highlight how love and compassion can transcend barriers; in this case, those of language and wartime hostility.’

lewisloves

‘Thomas Dennis as Albert and Peter Becker as Friedrich in particular, deserved to be signalled out for their powerful performances which are delivered with an arresting earnestness and intensity.’

your move magazine

‘The acting was amazing and we all felt compassion for the German Friedrick Muller, played wonderfully by Peter Becker, when he showed his love of the beast of burden too.’

What’s good to do

‘Peter Becker playing the German soldier Friedrich, produced a performance which (…) stood out for me.
