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.
