New work devised and performed by MA Music Theatre students
This exciting new work on feminism past and present is inspired by Joan Littlewood and Gerry Raffles’ 1965 Oh What A Lovely War, which used original and found songs, reportage, poems, scenes and historical documents to lampoon those that took us to war in 1914.
From the first wave of women’s suffrage in the early 20th century, right up to 2017, Oh Dear, What Can The Matter Be? is a riot of colour, history, music, drama and much more – telling the remarkable story of the fight for equality – a battle that still rages today.
N.B. This production contains strong language.
Looking forward @JS_Diaspora opening a discussion with stimulus from award winning film #MyNameIs @mynameisdocu on 'Decolonising the self before we can decolonise HE & culture' @RADA_London via @InfoTCCE tomorrow as part of a broader event from 1pm to 3pm. Deets to follow in🧵 pic.twitter.com/6ozzJLHTrG
