|Oh! What a Lovely War, is like no other musical you have seen before. Inspired by Joan Littlewoods pioneering production it Chronicles the events of the First World War. Satirically commentating on the viewpoints and attitudes of the officers and hierarchy of the period, pitted against the pride, enthusiasm and humour of the brave but innocent boys and men that signed up to fight for King and Country.
The award-winning WODS Musical Theatre Company brings to the Blakehay theatre this November a visually startling and moving contemporary adaptation of this modern classic which is guaranteed to be a theatrical event not to be missed.
“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light”
