Young, under-trained, and fed on the propaganda of his British homeland, Raleigh is unready for the horror of the Western Front. On arrival, his comfort is that he will enter under the command of Captain Stanhope, an old idol from school. But three years on the front line have left Stanhope a volatile alcoholic and a shadow of his former self. As Raleigh adapts to a new world of mud and gunpowder, and Stanhope controls his terror and his nervous company, the artillery guns rumble ever closer…
Cross Pollinate Productions in association with Norton Crumlin and Associates present Journey’s End by R.C. Sheriff, directed by Samantha Young (Resident Director Sport for Jove 2016, Affiliate Director Griffin Theatre Company 2015, Phillip Parsons Award Finalist 2013). Featuring a cast of young Australian talent, and coinciding with the ANZAC Centenary, Journey’s End delves deep into the trenches of World War One, where a group of conscripted soldiers find themselves at the mercy of unseen colonels and senseless orders, surrounded by a quiet that could erupt at any moment.
Earlybird $20 (Book by 5PM, 28 Sept)
