"Marvellous performances by all concerned. You took us right away from the atmosphere of the garden centre and into that dug-out with it's associated severe stresses. My wife had to stop herself shouting out at the raging 'Captain Stanhope' to leave the other man alone, so completely immersed in the performances was she, as was I."
"The most moving evening in the theatre I have ever experienced." Dr. Hugh Martin
"It was my privilege to watch the performance, you set the expectations really high and then exceeded them."

From the original concept through to the emotionally truthful acting and direction, it was amazing. I thoroughly 'enjoyed ' it.

"We have seen many Journey's End productions and we will remember this one for all the right reasons. Excellent." Steve Lambell - Thame Theatre Co.
"What an excellent production it was – well cast , well acted, the production in that intimate setting was so real and convincing. So much attention to detail – the candles, the enamel mugs, the uniforms, and so on. The end was as ever moving and shattering - as the bombs fell and the destruction grew, Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’ built up and swelled over everything - then black-out, the cast formed a tableau, soft lighting as names were read out ( just names, no ranks or titles ) – a list of the fallen from Weston Turville, the local village in which the company is based- and the Last Post played on a mouth organ. There was applause – of course – but the actors never returned and the audience left quietly and in deep thought. Wonderful.
