Webber Douglas Studio


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and Gerry Raffles’ 1965 Oh What A Lovely War, which used original and found songs, reportage, poems, scenes and historical documents to lampoon those that took us to war in 1914.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.
