why watch the wiper times

Succeeding a complete sell-out and a national tour, The Wiper Times returns to West End, ready to take it by storm. The brainchild of Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, this light-hearted play is sure to bring a smile to your face. The play is back to West End for only 7 weeks. This play is the stage version of the award-winning TV film. The Wiper Times expertly balances the horrors of war with the levity brought about by the newspaper company to paint a satirical picture of the pointlessness of war.

The Story

The show recounts the astounding true story of a newspaper that was created during the first World War, to mock and parody the state of the war. This cheeky, light-hearted, and sometimes even disruptive paper brought joy and laughter in the worst of times. The Wiper Times tells the world about this newspaper and the brave men behind it. The British soldiers in Ypres may not have known how to pronounce the name of the town they were in, but when they found a printing press, these cheeky troopers knew exactly what had to be done.

Good for

Comedy Lovers | People who love British humour

Critics Reviews

“Hislop and Nick Newman’s play explores the extraordinary real-life story of how a Punch-style publication was set up by troops during the first world war"
The Guardian

“Even – perhaps especially – at its silliest, the play has a respect for its subject matter that is deadly serious and decidedly affecting”
– The Times
