Oh What A Lovely War, the classic anti-war musical that powerfully and entertainingly satirises the First World War, is being performed at Anglia Ruskin University's Mumford Theatre on Monday 10 November by the Blackeyed Theatre company, in both the afternoon and the evening.

Oh What A Lovely War, first performed in 1963, is the most famous product of celebrated innovators of modern drama, Joan Littlewood's Theatre Workshop. This production will be directed by Adrian McDougall, with musical direction by Tom Neill. Tickets cost £10 (£8 for concessions).

Blackeyed Theatre describe themselves thus:

‘Blackeyed Theatre Company was established in 2004 to create exciting opportunities for artists and audiences alike. Our theatre is challenging yet accessible for both new and established audiences. It asks questions and invites reaction. It provokes only as live performance can.

We believe theatre is at its best when an audience is taken out of its comfort zone. That doesn't mean being shocking for the sake of being shocking. It's about making theatre memorable and thought-provoking without sacrificing enjoyment. It's about telling a story in a way that absorbs and moves its audience at every turn.

Blackeyed Theatre has a growing national reputation for creating dynamic theatre using live music and great performances to tell stories with honesty and passion.'
