Oh What a Lovely War

A musical drama by Joan Littlewood, Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and members of the original cast.

Staged: June 2016 @ Newlands Community Centre. 14 players. Director Ewen Coleman, Musical Director Anne Megget.

Ewen Coleman's management of the numerous vignettes and excerpts of life in England during the war, and on the battle front in places like the Somme and Passchendale, captured the highs and lows of the time.
The music of the war era was brought to life by Musical Director Anne Megget, with choreography by Jussam Mechen.
Lively and exuberant, the show also had many poignant moments and time for reflection as it showed the futility and hopelessness of war. This production was a huge undertaking for us, and we were very pleased with it's success.
