Journey's End -- Autumn 2014

Journeys-End-Image webDirected by Steven Bainbridge

Autumn 2014

Thanks to an award from the BBC Performing Arts Fund, we had the opportunity to present an additional piece of work this year.

To nourish new directing talent, we were awarded a grant to produce a published work with the help of an established director.

Supported by Jill Cole, Steven Bainbridge – recently seen playing Tybalt in Romeo & Juliet and Sherlock Holmes in Hound of the Baskervilles – turned his hand to directing R C Sherriff’s moving account of life in the trenches during the First World War. 

Journey’s End was performed at The Witham Hall on Friday, October 31st and Saturday, November 1st.
