Oh, What a Lovely War
Joan Littlewood’s Musical Entertainment
Tuesday 11th to Saturday 15th September 2018 at 7.45pm
Tickets £9 with £8 concessions
Oh, What a Lovely War was seen as an ironic critique of the reality of the war when it was first performed. A satire on World War I (and by extension against war in general) the title is derived from the music hall song Oh! It’s a Lovely War, by J. P. Long and Maurice Scott in 1917.
