Oh What A Lovely War
By Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles & members of the Original Cast-
Roll up, Roll up! And take your seat for the ever-popular ‘War Game’!
A cornerstone of modern musical theatre and one of the very greatest stage satires, Oh What A Lovely War is an extraordinary theatrical journey bringing to life the folly, farce and tragedy of the First World War.
A terrifyingly adept company of six actor-musos
One of the most innovative, audacious companies working in contemporary English theatre
Wildly satirical, visually stunning and deeply moving, it’s the musical that revolutionised modern theatre; an exhilarating, no-holds-barred assault on the military incompetence and inconceivable disregard for human life the First World War has come to represent.
One of the best shows I’ve seen in months. See it if you possibly can
Magnificent...Extraordinary...As haunting as it is harrowing...
Packed with timeless songs, razor-sharp satire and high jinks, Oh What A Lovely War is a hilarious, heart-breaking snapshot of life for those caught in the crossfire of conflict, a unanimous voice from the trenches and a timely warning from the theatre of war itself. Now, more than ever, it holds a mirror up to the world and speaks to us all.
A splendid revival that does the original production proud
