THORPE PLAYERS PRESENT "JOURNEY'S END"
Thu 2nd Oct 2014 - Sat 4th Oct 2014
As the country continues to mark 100 years since the start of the First World War, Thorpe Players will be marking the anniversary with their latest production.

Journey’s End by R.C. Sherriff is based on the author's own experience in the trenches and the set building team have created a ‘dug out’ on stage at the Roxley Hall in Thorpe.

It’s a gripping tale about ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances and the play shows how, in the face of adversity, the human spirit will always triumph.

Journey’s End is on 2nd, 3rd & 4th October at the Roxley Hall, Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew. Tickets are £7 and are available on line at the link below, or from the box office 01603 702777. The door and bar open at 7pm and curtain is up at 7.30pm.
