David Grindley's international multi-award winning production of R.C. Sherriff's masterpiece Journey’s End is a must-see of British theatre.
Based on the author's own experience in the trenches, this gripping tale of ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances celebrates their humour and courage, engaging audiences with a compelling insight into how human spirit will always triumph in the face of adversity.
Set in St Quentin in 1917, the play follows 18-year-old 2nd Lieutenant Raleigh, the new arrival in a company commanded by his former schoolfriend Captain Stanhope. There are only three years between them, but a lifetime of experience separates the pair as Raleigh discovers that the man in army greens is much changed from the boy who left him behind in cricketing whites.
