THE CRITICALLY acclaimed production of Oh What A Lovely War comes to the Devonshire Park Theatre from October 17-19.

The Blackeyed Theatre Company returns with a classic piece of modern theatre which is a powerful reminder of the atrocities of a war that cost 20 million lives.

Told through the songs and documents of the period, it is a satirical attack on the military incompetence and disregard for human life that the First World War has come to represent and a chilling reminder of man’s inhumanity to man.

Evolved as a devised stage production in 1963 and transformed into a film, which featured scenes shot at West Pier, Brighton and over the South Downs, by Richard Attenborough in 1969, Oh What A Lovely War has a style all of its own, combining live music, dance, songs and sketches.

Evening performances are at 7.45pm with a Wednesday matinee at 2.30pm. Tickets cost from £13.50-£18, call 412000.
