The critically acclaimed first world war musical Oh What A Lovely War!
Joan Littlewood’s legendary musical has been revived to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. Originally produced by Joan Littlewood at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, Oh What A Lovely War is a satirical masterpiece which was made into a classic film in 1969, starring amongst others Maggie Smith, John Gielgud and John Mills.
This revival, directed by Sam Elsby, is a riot of music and colour, but is also deeply moving and features some of the greatest songs from the First World War including It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag, Goodbye…ee, And When They Ask Us, Keep the Home Fires Burning and many more.
So pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and book now for this musical tribute to the men and women who saved our nation over 100 years ago.
‘This is a show that cries out to be seen as we mark the 100th anniversary of that terrible war’ The Telegraph
