Journey’s End by R.C. Sherriff    

November 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th     7:30 pm       

It is March, 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches in northern France led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope. A German offensive is imminent, and the officers and their cook distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and their past lives. Stanhope, meanwhile, soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with his dread of the inevitable. A young new officer, Raleigh, has just arrived, fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting – not least because he is to serve under Stanhope, his former school house monitor and the object of his sister’s affections. Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer…

Ubiquitous is delighted to have been granted the rights to this production, in the year that is the 100th anniversary of both the play’s setting and the end of the First World War. Director Terry Dean is looking forward to the challenge of creating the tension of life in an officer’s dugout, “At Ubiquitous we are constantly looking to create high quality, unique and innovative theatre. Our intention is that the audience who join us for Journey’s End will be moved and shaken by the experiences of these young men.”

The final performance will be on Remembrance Sunday, the 11th of November. During that weekend the Ubiquitous C Company will be taking part in events and ceremonies in Aylesbury Town Centre and Wendover.
