To mark and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Great War in 1914 we are proud to present the hugely popular play including great songs based on stories and songs from the Music Hall period. The original production in 1963 had a tremendous impact and set out to change attitudes to war using a devastating and successful theatrical style. There is humour and irony to be found even in this tragic event. With famous songs like ?Pack up your Troubles? and ?They didn?t believe Me?-join in the fun and memories in this great piece of theatre.
