Hever Festival Productions and Trinity Theatre present the Kent Rep Production of Joan Littlewood's Musical Entertainment Oh What a Lovely War by Theatre Workshop, Charles Chilton, Gerry Raffles and Members of the Original Cast. Title suggested by Ted Allan.

Originally produced in 1963 by Joan Littlewood and the Theatre Workshop, Oh What a Lovely War was later turned into a film by Richard Attenborough after winning the Grand Prix of the Theatre des Nations festival in Paris.
Presented in the format of a pre-1914 Pierrot Show, Oh What A Lovely War tells the story of the First World War in a series of music hall turns and comedy sketches, interspersed with well known songs of the time such as Goodbyee, Hold your Hand Out Naughty Boy, Pack Up Your Troubles and It's a Long Way to Tipperary. But what starts off as a highly enjoyable popular entertainment becomes a poignant and moving theatrical experience as the full story of the war unfolds.

Oh What A Lovely War is a classic of the modern theatre and an example of live theatre at its unique and unmissable best.

Kent Rep Productions are a professional repertory company, based at the open air Festival Theatre at Hever Castle. Established 25 years ago, they have gained a reputation for versatility and inventiveness that has earned them a considerable and loyal following. They are delighted to be working with Trinity this autumn to present Oh What A Lovely War outside of Hever.
