Set in the trenches at Saint-Quentin (northern France) in 1918 towards the end of WWI, Journey’s End takes you right into the dugout of a British Army infantry company.  An uncompromising, cleareyed play about war – and not war as it echoes on the home front or in chambers of government, but war as a daily phenomenon for those who fight it.” (Ben Brantley, New York Times). Filled with finely-drawn characters, Journey’s End brings a starkly human perspective in a WWI tale that is not to be missed.
