Oh! What a lovely war

Captivate Theatre is delighted to bring Oh! What A Lovely War to The Studio at Capital Theatres to commemorate 100 years since the guns fell silent.

 Joan Littlewood’s original production, in 1963, not only had a massive impact on the form and content of British theatre, but also challenged how the nation viewed the Great War. The poignant, bitter-sweet songs, gallows humour and stark statistics remain as deeply moving and shocking now as they were then.

With moving scenes such as the Christmas Truce, and songs from the era such as the title song and other catchy music hall numbers; poignant songs from the trenches; and the rousing Keep The Home Fires Burning, there won't be a dry eye left in the house at the end of this show.

Join Captivate Theatre this November to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One.”
