Journey's End

The "war to end all wars", didn't really turn out that way; and trench warfare certainly was hell. David Grindley has given us a superb revival of R.C. Sherriff's highly accurate 1928 World War I drama. Though dated in spots, it still conveys the horror of not knowing if the next moment would be the last moment... The cast is top shelf, with special commendations to Hugh Dancy, Boyd Gaines, Jefferson Mays and Stark Sands. [Belasco]
