France 1918. Germany’s spring offensive is imminent and British officers are holed up in a dug-out on the front line. Keen young officer Raleigh joins the company and finds Stanhope, his old friend, much changed. Trying to create some sort of normality amidst the horror, are Trotter, who is furious about how the war has interfered with his meal times, Hibbert, who is trying to find a way to escape, and Osborne, who would rather be tending his garden.
Journey’s End is an unflinching portrayal of men facing the unbearable but finding the camaraderie to keep on fighting. This powerful and moving play is performed by a talented company from Grafton house.
