University Players Presents Journey’s End The Historic Drama
November 28, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - December 2, 2018 @ 4:30 pm
University Players (UP Windsor) presents the historic drama, Journey’s End, at Essex Hall Theatre on November 23, 24, 25, 28, 29, 30, December 1 & 2, 2018.
This historic piece of British drama will be performed to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Taking place over 4 days in 1918, we meet the members of Company C, awaiting an imminent German attack, and grappling with cold, unforgiving life in the trenches. The ordinarily charismatic Captain Stanhope turns to drink to ease the pain but must come to terms with his problems when the young and eager new recruit Raleigh arrives and reminds him of life back home.

Evening performances from Wednesday to Saturday start at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday matinee performances are at 2 p.m.
Essex Hall Theatre is located on the University of Windsor campus on the corner of Wyandotte and Patricia.
