Joan Littlewood’s legendary musical has been revived to commemorate the 100th anniversary 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 highly acclaimed revival directed by the multi award-winning Terry Johnson is a riot of music and colour, 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.
