News   Journey's End Heads Back to West End for Summer Season Before Resuming U.K. Tour
 
David Grindley's Tony-winning production of RC Sherriff's World War I drama Journey's End is to return to the West End for a summer season, beginning performances at the Duke of York's Theatre July 19, prior to an official opening July 22, for a limited run of 55 performances only through Sept. 3. It will then resume its current U.K. national tour in Glasgow from Sept. 6.

The production, first seen at the Comedy Theatre in 2004 and subsequently going on to play further stands at the Playhouse and Duke of York's, as well as two prior national U.K. tours, was seen at Broadway's Belasco Theatre in 2007. It won the 2007 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. Set in the British trenches at St Quentin in 1918, in the days leading up to Operation Michael on March 21, the last great German Offensive of the First World War, it follows a company of officers as they prepare for a daring raid across No Man's Land to gather intelligence.

The production is designed by Jonathan Fensom, with lighting by Jason Taylor and sound by Gregory Clarke. The cast includes Graham Butler, Tim Chipping, Andy Daniel, Daniel Hanna, Simon Harrison, Nigel Hastings, Mike Hayley, Dominic Mafham, James Norton, Christian Patterson and Tony Turner. Journey's End is presented by Flora Suk-Hwa Yoon and Lee Menzies with Act Productions Ltd, Jeremy Meadow, Suzanna Rosenthal and The Shaftesbury Theatre.
