The Screen Guide

‘Lessons from Joan’ revisits a vibrant and fascinating moment in British theatre history – the creation and performance of iconoclastic director Joan Littlewood’s satirical World War I musical 'Oh, What a Lovely War!' By exploring the memories of several esteemed actors with archive footage and photographs, 'Lessons from Joan' evokes what it was about Joan Littlewood’s technique of theatre writing and directing that made 'Oh, What a Lovely War!' such a fresh and revolutionary theatrical work when it premiered in 1963.
