First performed in 1928 starring Laurence Olivier, Journey’s End by RC Sherriff is set in the dug-out of a trench in France during the First World War. It follows a group of British soldiers in the last four days before they embark on their operation.
Raleigh, a new eighteen-year-old officer fresh out of school, joins the besieged company of his friend Stanhope, who he looked up to as a young boy. It is through this time spent on the front line, that Raleigh realises the effect war has had on these men and also himself.
The play tells an honest and harrowing depiction of what it was like in the trenches, both through a mixture of comedic and tragic moments. Not only does the play remain a great anti-war classic, but the timing of this production will also mark 100 years after the end of the First World War.
The play is a tragic insight into what British soldiers fought for, as well as an opportunity to reflect and remember those who gave up their lives.
