Oh What A Lovely War

Event image

by Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and Members of the Original Cast.

Joan Littlewood's Musical Entertainment.

Title suggested by Ted Allen.

Evening performances at 7.30pm, plus a matinee at 2.30pm on Saturday 25 June. (Approximate finishing time is 10.00pm for evening performances, 5.00pm for the matinee.)

In 1914, when the Army came to town they wanted just one thing - YOU! By 1918, young recruits in their millions had left their homes and families, never to return.

Sixty years later a band of travelling actors and musicians retell their story. Featuring wartime songs such as Goodbye-ee, Keep the Home Fires Burning and Pack Up Your Troubles, this production will delight and inform new and old audiences alike.

So pack up your troubles and take your seats for an exhilarating expose of an unforgettable moment in history.

Directed by David Underwood.
