News in from Charlton’s amateur dramatics group about their upcoming production:
The Alexandra Players are delighted to present “Oh What A Lovely War” in support of The British Legion’s #ThankYou100 campaign. Through the sale of poppies, we hope to raise money for the charity and provide our audiences with 4 nights of acting and entertainment in October.
Oh What A Lovely War
A chronicle of the First World War, told through songs and documents in the form of a seaside pierrot entertainment of the period, was devised and presented by Joan Littlewood’s Theatre Workshop at the Theatre Royal, Stratford East, London, in 1963. It was the result of close co-operation between writer, actors and director, where the whole team participated in detailed research into the period and in the creative task of bringing their material to life in theatrical terms. It won the acclaim of audiences and critics and the Grand Prix of the Theatre des Nations festival in Paris in 1963 and has become a classic of the modern theatre.
