Oh What A Lovely War

March 12th - March 16th

 

Blackeyed Theatre in association with South Hill Park Arts Centre

presents the 60th anniversary tour of Joan Littlewood’s Musical Entertainment

Oh What A Lovely War

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. 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.

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” Brian Murphy, from the cast of the original 1963 production of Oh What A Lovely War

“Magnificent … Extraordinary … As haunting as it is harrowing … Astonishing power … Any assumption that Oh ! What a Lovely War is a period piece is shot to shrapnel. Forty years on, we need Littlewood’s vision more than ever. Blackeyed Theatre restore it to us with astonishing power. Catch it if you can”  The Stage

“Fast, energetic and immaculately choreographed. Joan Littlewood would have been delighted by this production … A remarkable evening” Hexham Courant
