Description

Sherriff wrote the play based on his own experiences, and appears to have no particular axe to grind - neither anti-war, nor patriotic - with its primary focus on the toll placed on the young officers and the working class soldiers thrown into such a horrific situation. As always when I read something like this about any war, I find myself contemplating two major questions.

It is, in some respects, the World War One experience we have come to know the most, which is the Officers war. Gore-Langton supplies enough information to satisfy the theatrical connoisseur and be of use to school-pupils mugging up on this syllabus staple. Men hanging around, talking, playing cards, eating rations and being happy when they got some chicken. Foretold he will become King of Scotland and spurred on by his wife, Macbeth commits deadly treason to seize the throne. During the Second World War, productions were staged by members of the Royal Natal Carbineers at El Khatatba, Egypt (January 1944); and by British prisoners in Changi Prison, Singapore (February 1943); at Tamarkan, Thailand, a Japanese labour camp on the Burma Railway (July 1943); in Stalag 344, near Lamsdorf, Germany (July 1944); and in Campo P.it was painful, but it serves its purpose of showing how the lives of young men with a bright future are consumed and wasted at war. Starring Hugh Dancy, Boyd Gaines, Jefferson Mays and Stark Sands, it opened in New York at the Belasco Theatre on 22 February 2007 and closed on 10 June after 125 performances.

But I love the theatre and I’ve wanted to read Journey’s End for a while now because I’ve heard it was beautiful and tragic.

He did not consider his performance successful, writing afterwards that his audience "politely watched me take a fine part in a fine play and throw it into the alley. Yep, he said, we went from village to village, across fields and gardens, through woods and so on, always looking over your shoulder.
