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.

 

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.
