TCAT are proud to bring you this poignant play on this very special day in November. As part of the Centenary Remembrance of the First World War, one of our favourite touring theatre groups ‘Immersion Theatre’ return to share this heart-breaking story of war, loss and comradeship.
Earlier in the day hundreds of local school children will watch this performance as part of their History lessons at Tiverton High School, during which we hope to be joined by visiting ex-service personnel.
Then the public have the opportunity to watch the performance in the evening. We hope you will join us as we come together to remember, and witness these outstanding young actors, some of whom are a similar age to the brave young soldiers they portray.
March 1918. “The war to end all wars”.
Anxiety builds in Captain Stanhope’s claustrophobic dugout as the threat of an imminent German attack looms over the battalion. As final orders are received, Stanhope must stir his men to overcome the uncertainty of the unknown, make the ultimate sacrifice and prepare to “go over the top” in a truly heart wrenching climax.
Journey’s End is a harrowing insight into the humanity of the First World War based on R. C. Sherriff’s own experiences in the trenches. Utterly compelling, this award-winning classic masterfully brings the courage, valour, humour and inescapable tragedy of warfare to the stage.
