The Everyman’s re-opening season continues with David Grindley’s international multi-award-winning production of R.C. Sherriff’s World War I masterpiece, Journey’s End.
Based on the author’s own experience in the trenches, this gripping tale about ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances celebrates humour and courage, engaging audiences with a compelling insight of how, in the face of adversity, the human spirit will always triumph.
Set in St. Quentin in 1917, eighteen year-old 2nd Lieutenant Raleigh is the new arrival in the company commanded by his former schoolboy friend, Captain Stanhope. There’s 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 he left behind in cricketing whites...
This is an unmissable, excellent production, by turns tense and touching, emotionally moving and yet humourous.. It is searing drama at its best and truly unforgettable – classic, British theatre.
