Based on a treatment by Ted Allan


Based on World War I factual data found in official records, memoirs and commentaries including those of the Imperial War Museum, Kaiser Wilhelm II, Gen. Erich Ludendorff, Field Marshal Graf von Schlieffen, Marshal Joffre, Field Marshal Earl Haig, Field Marshal Sir John French, Gen. Sir Henry Wilson, Rt. Hon. David Lloyd George, Philip Noel-Baker, Alan Clark, Engelbracht and Hanighen, Siegfried Sassoon, Sir Philip Gibbs, Edmund Blunden, Leon Wolff, Captain Liddell Hart, Barbara Tuchman, Herman Kahn, the London newspapers Times and Doily Express.

Oh! What a Lovely War was partly improvised by its cast and director, then assembled into a collage depicting the horrors of World War I through period songs and words borrowed from official records, war memoirs, and personal recollections. Almost everything in the show was actually written or spoken between 1914 and 1918. A powerful anti-war piece and a scathing indictment of military blunders and the futile loss of lives, the material of Oh! What a Lovely War was presented within the framework of an English seaside entertainment, called a Pierrot show, and featuring a master of ceremonies.

by Stage Tube - May 22, 2015

Happy Birthday, Laurence Olivier! Born in 1907, Olivier remains one of the most revered actors of the 20th century. He was the first artistic director of the National Theatre of Great Britain and its main stage is named in his honour. Olivier's career as a stage and film actor spanned more than six decades and included a wide variety of roles, from the title role in Shakespeare's Othello and Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night to the sadistic Nazi dentist Christian Szell in Marathon Man and the kindly but determined Nazi-hunter in The Boys from Brazil. Olivier played more than 120 stage roles: Richard III, Macbeth, Romeo, Hamlet, Othello, Uncle Vanya, and Archie Rice in The Entertainer. He appeared in nearly sixty films, including William Wyler's Wuthering Heights, Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca, Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus, Otto Preminger's Bunny Lake Is Missing, Richard Attenborough's Oh! What a Lovely War, and A Bridge Too Far, Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Sleuth, John Schlesinger's Marathon Man, Daniel Petrie's The Betsy, Desmond Davis' Clash of the Titans, and his own Henry V, Hamlet, and Richard III. (more...)
