Oh What A Lovely WarBuilt upon the songs that ordinary British soldiers sang during a war that killed 10 million in four years, this Musical Entertainment production is a powerful comment against war. A riot of music and colour, brilliantly comic and deeply moving, Terry Johnson's reimagined production remains true to the spirit of Joan Littlewood's 1963 original. Ian Reddington (EastEnders, Coronation Street) and Christopher Villiers (Emmerdale) join Wendi Peters, best known for her role as Cilla Battersby in Coronation Street, when the Theatre Royal Stratford East production returns to the theatre and tours in 2015 following a well received debut at the Stratford theatre last year.

Today the theatre has 450 seats and showcases new writing and ethnically diverse plays. More about Theatre Royal Stratford East
