Oh What a Lovely War





On 21st to 24th November 2018 we will be producing
Joan Littlewood’s Musical Entertainment

by Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and members of the original cast, title suggested by Ted Allan.

Based on the 1963 stage show, this is a satire on World War I (and by extension against war in general), the title coming from the music hall song "Oh! It's a Lovely War," which is one of the major numbers in the production.

Joan Littlewood wanted audiences to leave the theatre laughing at the "vulgarity of war". This is a show with everything - slap-stick comedy, songs, tragedy, and total respect for the fallen.

There will be readings on 23rd and 26th July for anyone who wants to be involved.

This will be part of the commemoration of the 100 years since the end of WW1 and we are working alongside Chertsey Museum and their Runnymede Remembered project.
