The Genesian Theatre is proud to bring you the multi-award winning play Journey's End by R.C. Sherriff. Set in the trenches of France during WWI, it examines the relationships of a group of British officers in a dugout in France.

The story weaves around the experiences and interactions of three officers Stanhope, Osborne and Raleigh; over a six day period of duty. The Commanding Officer of B Company is young Captain Stanhope, who has been fighting at the front line for three years and outlived most of his companions. With a strong sense of duty and responsibility, he is determined to see the war through and bravely lead his men regardless of the outcome. Heroic, strong and impassioned, Stanhope received the Military Cross; yet he has to face his internal demons.

More than just a poignant play about the loss of innocence, Journey's End appreciates the inner strengths of duty, honour, compassion and love felt by the soldiers; even when under the most difficult of situations. Moreover, Sherriff has also crafted a play which shows how people use the power of humour in a crisis to keep their sanity.

Journey's End, is much more than a great night's entertainment, it leaves you with a strong appreciation for life and a desire for peace.
