Journey's End is a classic play about the
First World War and is scheduled to commemorate the centenary
of the end of the war.
The play is set in C Company's Officer's Quarters in the
trenches at Saint Quentin, Aisne in a four day period
in March 1918 leading up to the real "Operation Michael".
List of Characters:
Captain Stanhope - Senior Officer in C Company.
Decorated, dedicated but flawed.
Lieutenant Osborne - Second in Command. Ex Public
School Teacher and capped Rugby Player.
Second Lieutenant Raleigh - new boy on the block,
enthusiastic and boyish.
Second Lieutenant Trotter - rather a contrast to
the other officers - perhaps a bit overweight and lower
Second Lieutenant Hibbert - young and frightened.
The Colonel - middle aged and more upper class
than the others. Not totally unsympathetic.
Captain Hardy - Senior Officer from another Company.
Private Mason - Enlisted Soldier, batman to Stanhope
and cook to the Officers of C Company
Company Sergeant Major - Bluff stereotypical SM,
in charge of the enlisted men.
A German Soldier
A Lance Corporal
NB I haven't been specific about ages, it might
