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.
The show features Wendi Peters, best-known for her role as Cilla Battersby in Coronation Street, alongside Ian Reddington (EastEnders, Coronation Street) and Christopher Villiers (Emmerdale).
Oh What A Lovely War opens at Belgrade Theatre, Coventry on 31 March and runs until 4 April. But don't worry, if you can't make the dates, the show returns to the Midlands on 5 May, running at Birmingham Repertory Theatre until 9 May.
