Journey’s End

About the play

The last ever production at Beresford Street – what a way to bring the curtain down

‘Journey’s End’ was the first play about the First World War to become a popular success. Though not specifically an anti-war play, it explores in a realistic and emotionally moving way the reactions and relationships of a small group of officers in a dug-out at St. Quentin in 1918, revealing the tensions and horrors of trench warfare.
