Joan Littlewood’s Musical Entertainment Oh What A Lovely War by Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and Members of the Original Cast. Title suggested by Ted Allan
Pack up your troubles with Joan Littlewood’s critically acclaimed satirical First World War musical in the year Britain remembers the Passchendaele campaign of 1917.
Oh What A Lovely War, performed as an end of pier show by a troupe of Pierrot entertainers, relives the horror and dark humour of the First World War through song, dance and stunning visuals.
Performed by a talented ensemble of actor-musicians, Oh What A Lovely War features 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 and Keep The Home Fires Burning.
Oh What A Lovely War is deeply moving, taking us through one of the most painful times in our history; it resonates with the pity of war and the impact of war on us all.
