Oh What A Lovely War
17 November @ 7:30 pm£7 – £25
Wildly satirical, visually stunning and deeply moving, Oh! What a Lovely War is a theatrical experience like no other; a fusion of live music, movement, songs and sketches bringing to life the folly, farce and tragedy of the First World War.
More than a century on from the Armistice, Joan Littlewood’s musical entertainment Oh! What A Lovely War remains a classic of the modern theatre and a powerful reminder of the atrocities of a war that cost twenty million lives.
A journey from joy to despair and back again, it’s a deliciously satirical attack on the military incompetence and inconceivable disregard for human life the First World War has come to represent and a chilling reminder of man’s inhumanity to man. Now, more than ever, it holds a mirror up to the world and speaks to us all.
