David Grindley's Tony-winning production of Journey's End , R.C. Sherriff's World War I drama, is set to return to the London stage this summer. The play will begin performances at the Duke of York's Theatre on the West End on July 19, ahead of an official opening on July 22. The limited engagement will run until September 3, after which Journey’s End will resume its UK tour in Glasgow on September 6.
Journey’s End is set in the British trenches at St. Quentin in 1918, in the days leading up to the last great German Offensive of the First World War, a day that saw the deaths of 38,000 men. The cast will feature Graham Butler, Tim Chipping, Andy Daniel, Daniel Hanna, Simon Harrison, Nigel Hastings, Mike Hayley, Dominic Mafham, James Norton, Christian Patterson and Tony Turner as a company of officers preparing for a daring raid across No Man’s Land to gather intelligence.
