Journey's End Story

Based on R.C. Sherriff's own experiences in the Great War, Journey's End is set in a trench in St. Quentin, France, as a group of British officers await their day of reckoning. The young Captain Stanhope tries to galvanize his men as they prepare to raid the enemy across No Man's Land. Meanwhile, his company is joined by his old schoolfriend Raleigh, who finds his one-time hero much changed. Journey's End was the first play written about World War I, and premiered in 1929 to great critical acclaim, which led to multiple international productions. A 75th Anniversary revival took place in [IMG:L]London in 2004, an like this production, was guided by the direction of David Grindley. At times funny, often heart-wrenching and always poignant, this stunning Broadway revival features a stellar cast, including rising film star Hugh Dancy, three-time Tony winner Boyd Gaines, Tony winner Jefferson Mays and up-and-comer Stark Sands.
