RC Sherriff’s classic First World War drama Journey’s End is coming to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from November 15-19, as part of a national tour.
Directed by David Grindley, and fresh from a celebrated West End run, winning many awards in the process, the play is set in the British trenches at St Quentin in 1918.
In the days leading up to Operation Michael on March 21, the last great German Offensive of the First World War, a day that saw the deaths of 38,000 men, a company of officers prepare for a daring raid across No Man’s Land to gather intelligence.
Based on the author’s own experience of life in the trenches, it celebrates humour and courage in the face of certain tragedy, and remains an important reminder of the horrors of war and the real, unromanticised heroes who fought it.
Tickets to see this acclaimed production of Journey’s End, by RC Sherriff, are £12-£26 (plus concessions). Call the box office for ticket details on 0115 9895555.
