Journey's End

by R. C. Sherriff

R.C. Sherriff's ground-breaking play remains one of the most powerful pieces of modern drama to deal with the tragedy and horror of conflict. 
Set over four days leading up to a massive German attack on the British trenches in March 1918, Journey's End charts the tension and claustrophobia as a new recruit, Lieutenant Raleigh, discovers that Captain Stanhope, his former childhood friend and hero, has changed almost beyond recognition. 
“The play draws its power from the detail…incomparably moving” – Daily Mail 
“A sublime play…a corkscrew of tension, emotion and drama left not a dry eye in the house” - Independent 
“Recent revivals have suggested that Sherriff's drama remains as hard-hitting and fresh as ever” –   The Guardian
