On Tuesday, 4th October 2011, WinkBall video reporters Ola and Izzy were at the Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton, to record the views of members of the audience who had come to see the play by R.C. Sherriff, Journey’s End. Based on the author’s own experience in the trenches, this gripping tale about ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances celebrates humour and courage, engaging audiences with a compelling insight of how, in the face of adversity, the human spirit will always triumph.
Set in St. Quentin in 1917, eighteen-year-old 2nd Lieutenant Raleigh is the new arrival in the company commanded by his former schoolboy friend, Captain Stanhope. There’s only three years between them, but a lifetime of experience separates the pair as Raleigh discovers that the man in army greens is much changed from the boy he left behind in cricketing whites.
We got the views of members of the public both before and after the play. What do you think of this David Grindley production of a classic play?
