This Friday, at the Kulturhaus in Mersch, I had the chance to photograph a wonderful play called “Oh, What a Lovely War”, a New World Theatre Club production, written by Joan Littlewood and the Theatre Workshop back in 1963 and directed by Julie Fraser.
I was delighted by the impressive act of such a large and diverse cast (29 people of all ages on the stage). “Oh, What a Lovely War” is an epic musical about World War I, and, while the play itself amused me, I must confess that I was moved by the painful truths it revealed about war in general.
The audience seemed to have enjoyed it too, and my only conclusion is: Oh, What a Lovely Play!
