Présentation de l'éditeur

Set in the First World War, Journey's End concerns a group of British officers on the front line and opens in a dugout in the trenches in France. Raleigh, a new eighteen-year-old officer fresh out of English public school, joins the besieged company of his friend and cricketing hero Stanhope, and finds him dramatically changed ...

Laurence Olivier starred as Stanhope in the first performance of Journey's End in 1928; the play was an instant stage success and remains a remarkable anti-war classic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Journey's End - a Masterpiece 2 juillet 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As far as I know, this is the only play R C Sherriff ever wrote, and that is one of the greatest tragedies of the twentieth century. There have been various theatrical productions - including the Jason Connery/Nicky Henson production at the Whitehall theatre which captured absolutely the poignant, black humour of the piece. This drama, set in the trenches has everything - comedy, tragedy, history, despair and hope. I studied this piece at school and it has made a lasting impression on me. Captain Stanhope and Uncle will have a place in my heart for ever...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 time to rediscover this play 17 juillet 2005
Par J - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The theatrical power of "Journey's End" is only heightened by the humor in the details of each day's living in the face of certain death. The playwright's craft in characterization and circumstance raises the work past the "war play" genre to the level of human tragedy for its period and for all time. Lucky, too, for anyone interested, that there is a first-rate production on view this season (2005) at the Shaw Festival, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, just over the border north of Naigara Falls.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Life in the Trenches 20 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A true classic about life in the trenches. The writer served with an infantry regiment for most of the war and it shows. The play is sharp and spare. A truly remarkable work. I discovered it by accident. Read this play. And cross your fingers that one day you can see it on stage. Mine are.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Still Packs A Punch 15 juin 2013
Par Bill Slocum - Publié sur
Format: Broché
"Journey's End" may be wedded to a particular place and time, but its insights and economical stagecraft work to deliver a still-searing emotional journey.

In the middle of World War I, five British officers and their company are assigned a hot sector of the Western Front. Their commander, Captain Stanhope, is a battle-hardened leader of uncommon reliability, but after too much combat time, also a self-hating drunk in the safety of his dugout. He must prepare his company for a big German attack while also dealing with a ghost from his own past, a young officer named Raleigh who looked up to Stanhope before the war and now perhaps wonders what became of his old hero.

R. C. Sherriff's 1929 play sounds familiar themes about the pain of war and the stupidity of sending young men off to die in order to satisfy their superiors' momentary whims. These themes have been used to death in the years since, in everything from Stanley Kubrick's film "Paths Of Glory" to the conclusion of the British TV series "Blackadder." You can't penalize "Journey's End" for getting there early, though its originality doesn't make those themes any fresher. War is hell. We get it.

What makes "Journey's End" work for me is how its characters interact, believably real and conversational despite the playwright's observing the necessities of an acted drama. We only have one setting, an officer's dugout beneath a trenchline, and only a handful of characters to follow, yet Sherriff makes the most of his spare set and cast. An experienced playwright by the time he wrote this, as well as a World War I veteran, Sherriff makes sure to present his characters in various combinations in order to draw out their personalities, their quirks, and their humor.

Stanhope is in the strangest predicament, his condition mirroring the postwar nausea of the Lost Generation to whom Sherriff's play seems a direct channel, however unlike those Bohemians Sherriff might have otherwise been. "D'you ever get a sudden feeling that everything's going farther and farther away...and you struggle to get back - and can't?" Stanhope asks. His handling of the Raleigh situation particularly shows a man losing what's left of his grip.

In addition to Stanhope, we also meet his deputy, Osborne, known as "Uncle," quietly loyal to Stanhope but concerned about his friend's state of mind and the play's voice of conscience. Trotter is a bit of a glutton and a slacker, the kind of character who whines at the dinner table "war's bad enough with pepper, but war without pepper - it's - it's bloody awful!" Hibbert claims he has neuralgia but Stanhope suspects he's just feigning to get out of combat. Raleigh is the eager youngster who just wants to prove himself in the eyes of his hero Stanhope, and doesn't seem to get the distinction between doing so on the rugby field and here.

"Journey's End" is a bleak play but not a dire one, it moves rather quickly and balances its tension with a kind of reverie that keeps us caring about Stanhope and the others. The play has its share of big scenes, but mostly plays rather quietly, letting the deadly reality of life sink in as we listen to the characters discuss such things as gardens and archaeology. We feel like we are observing a deeper truth because we are, albeit in a realistic way that never calls attention to itself. The war it depicts may be nearly a century behind us, but "Journey's End" remains vital.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Mortar is Cascading 5 décembre 1999
Par James - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Excellent play. Excellent poignancy. Excellent subtlety. For English, I had to write another ending for the play and it served me so well. Stanhope's bottled emotions versus Raleigh's incomprehension of everything creates an extremely powerful juxta-POS-ition. To read it is a pretty good experience. But to see the TV version with Timothy Spall as Trotter is something else entirely. Wicked. Aye.
