What is currently on at Swan Theatre (V136)

Miss Littlewood

Joan Littlewood was the anarchic revolutionary of 20th century theatre. Born into poverty, she raged her way to have a lasting influence on British culture. Anti-establishment, communist, visionary, rude and glorious, Joan fired the imagination of a generation. Her unique Theatre Workshop was responsible for a raft of successes including Oh What A Lovely War!, and breathed new life into the Theatre Royal Stratford East. This new musical of Joan's life story, told with her own uncompromising candour, reveals a mighty love story at its heart.

User Reviews

Pete (29Jun18): Many good individual performances but the play didn’t come alive for me. It felt like a “luvvie fest” with too many PC and left wing cliches combined with typical RSC approach to casting. I left without really knowing anything of any depth about Mrs Littlewood. However I was probably in a minority as many in the audience appeared to be in raptures!!!
