Guild Hall will present an encore screening of the National Theatre’s London stage production of “War Horse” on Saturday at 7 p.m. Based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, “War Horse” is a drama about the harrowing journey of a horse from rural Devon to the battlefields of France during World War I. The production features South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company’s galloping, full-scale “horses,” whose flanks, hides, and sinews are built of steel, leather, and aircraft cables.
“The Flower of Empire,” an illustrated talk by Tatiana Holway, author of a book by the same name, will take place Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Bridgehampton Community House. Published last April, Ms. Holway’s book describes the 1837 discovery in Guiana of a giant Amazonian water lily that influenced botany, industry, culture, and empire in Victorian England. Admission is $10, free for members, and refreshments will be provided.
