How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Toys is a war satire that speaks to the child in all of us. Chronicling the exploits and adventures of two opposing armies of toy soldiers, it explores the absurdities of war with ferocious humour and fearsome wit. Complete with a cast of toy soldiers, militant ‘Babsie’ dolls and a host of other inhabitants of the toy box, this is a comedy with a sense of humour to match its sense of morality.
LUT's success with Cows:The Musical two years ago, the chance to take another original production to Edinburgh was too tempting to resist.
How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Toys will receive its world premiere in August at the Edinburgh Festival
Fringe. The play - venue, the Crowne Plaza, Edinburgh - runs from
LUT, the University of Leicester Theatre, is run by students, for
students. LUT members manage to combine organising all aspects of the
theatre with full-time degree studies and part-time jobs, as well as
undertaking various fundraising activities to support their
recent years LUT has gone from strength to strength, achieving
international success at the Shakespeare Youth 2000 festival in
Vilnius, Lithuania and at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2001, and with the
recently announced closure of the Leicester Haymarket Theatre looming,
it is more important than ever for us to keep Leicester’s theatre
