One woman with a revolution to stage

Anti-establishment, visionary, rude and glorious, Joan Littlewood fired the imagination of a generation. Based on her life story, Sam Kenyon’s new musical charts the emotional highs and lows of Joan’s journey from The East End to the West End.

Joan Littlewood was the anarchic revolutionary of 20th century theatre. Her unique Theatre Workshop was responsible for a raft of successes including Oh, What A Lovely War!, and breathed new life into the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Told with her own uncompromising honesty, this new musical reveals a mighty love story at its heart.

Please note: This production contains strong language and cigarette smoke.
