To commemorate the centenary of WW1, the theatre is delighed to present this renowned play. Devised as a theatre workshop production under the leadership of Joan Littlewood, it catches the hypocrisy, vanity, passion, bitterness and sheer horror of WW1 and is regarded as a magnificent piece of theatrical history - a cult hit, in fact.
It does not fall into the usual 'musical' genre, being a piece of pacifist propaganda - with songs!
Richard Attenborough made his debut as a film director with the film version in 1969 (with screenplay by Len Deighton), but this had very little in common with the original workshop concept.,
This will be a performance of Joan Littlewood's original script.
