FROM THE ARCHIVES

Journey's End at The Company of Players (Hertford) 06
Season: 2006-2007
15th – 23rd September 2006 at 8pm Journey's End
By R. C. Sherriff  
Directed by  Loretta Freeman

First performed in 1929, this anti-war classic, set in the British trenches at St Quentin, is based on the author’s own experiences of the Front. Young Raleigh joins up and finds himself posted to the Company of Captain Stanhope; his idol from school. But Stanhope, promoted beyond his experience and years, has changed, and now faces the inevitabilities of the front line.

Journey’s End is filled with humour in the face of certain tragedy and is as much the story of its many characters as it is an observation on war.
