Oh What a Lovely War is a musical that shook Britain and transformed British theatre forever. Mid Powys Youth Theatre have given their own unique voice to this brand new production which is fiercely funny, playful, poignant and infuriating…sometimes in just one song! The company play 92 parts between them in a play which incorporates a rich mix of theatre styles with live music freshly arranged by Rosie McConnell, songs of the time and some big dance numbers!
The year is 1914 and the balance of power is beginning to shift. Change is coming, but at the cost of what? And of who?
Just like Joan Littlewood and Theatre Workshop, Mid Powys Youth Theatre have undergone rigorous research in the development of this brand new production. They have considered how the war contributed to creating the world they now know and have contemplated what we can learn from the mistakes of the past. What drives human beings to make war? What drives peoples to make sacrifices? They have stepped, boldly, into the shoes of young people of their age of 100 years ago.
Hold onto your hats and let the war game begin!
