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.

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.

Starring Wendi Peters, best-known for her role as Cilla Battersby in Coronation Street, alongside Ian Reddington (EastEnders, Coronation Street) and Christopher Villiers (Emmerdale).
