Oh What a Lovely War archiveComic expose of the savage futility of war in general and the First World War in particular.' Your Country Needs You' - The rallying call for a generation to do their patriotic duty and fight for king and country. A slogan which resonates with bitter futility for doomed youth who fought and died in the Great War, which claimed 10 million lives and left twice that number wounded and maimed. Oh What a Lovely War tells the story of this defining event of the 20th century through songs, sketches and period newsreel. A rousing musical, presented as a music hall revue, this highly charged satire on war and its horror is, in turns, brilliantly comic and deeply moving.
Performers Joanna Croll, Victoria Elliott, Helen Embleton, Karen Fisher-Pollard, Robert Hands, Tarek Merchant, Thomas Padden, Christopher Price, Theone Rashleigh, Jon Trenchard.
Author Joan Littlewood. Company Northern Stage. Director Erica Whyman. Director Sam Kenyon. Design Angela Simpson. Lighting Charles Balfour. Music Sam Kenyon (musical arrangement).
