Journey’s End at the National World War I Museum
Feb. 14 - March 2
Set in the trenches at Saint-Quentin in 1918 toward the end of World War I, Journey’s End takes you into the dugout of a British Army infantry company. The production is a joint partnership with the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the Kansas City Actors Theatre. Filled with finely-drawn characters, Journey’s End brings a starkly human perspective in a World War I tale that is not to be missed.
“An uncompromising, clear-eyed play about war and not war as it echoes on the home front or in chambers of government, but war as a daily phenomenon for those who fight it.” - Ben Brantley, New York Times
