STANHOPE: “You don’t deserve to be shot by accident – but I’ll save you the disgrace of the other way – I give you half a minute to decide.”
By R.C. Sherriff. Directed by Dan Shaw
R.C. Sherriff’s ground-breaking play remains one of the most powerful and successful pieces of modern drama and one of the most acclaimed examples of literature that deals with the horror and futility of conflict.
Originally set in the British trenches in 1917, Journey’s End charts the tension and claustrophobia as a company awaits attack in their dugout. But by removing references to places and dates, it becomes a universal story of how warfare can change people beyond recognition.
“Sherriff’s play, written in the 1920s and based on his own experience, comes straight from the heart. It tells it how Sherriff saw it, and because it comes with no agenda – either anti-war or patriotic – it is all the more powerful.” – The Guardian
