“Get your hair cut,” commands First World War veteran Mr. W. J. Dowse to a discomfited Nigel Shaw at a rehearsal of The Hospital Players’ production of ‘Journey’s End,’ to be presented at the Civic Theatre next week.
Mr. Dowse had been called in to advise on Army practice and procedure. Looking on with some complacence, having anticipated the order, are Tony Bridgewater (second right) and David Mann, while David Elford (second left) and Frank Palmer, realising that their turn has yet to come, show their disapproval in no uncertain manner!
The Star, 26th February 1965
Fifty years after the ‘Great War,’ ‘Journey’s End’ seems to be the only English play of lasting merit which has emerged from that conflict. We hope you enjoy our production.
We are pleased to welcome two ex-members of the Players out of retirement, they help to make this production possible, Ivan Clayton as Private Mason and Eric Dove as Captain Hardy.
Ray Dicks, who plays the part of young Lieutenant Raleigh, is the Public Liaison Officer for the Lincoln Theatre Company and in addition to playing Raleigh has helped Miss Gardner in the production of ‘Journey’s End.’
Our final production of the season will be ‘Sergeant Musgrave’s Dance,’ May 5th to 8th. We hope that if you enjoy ‘Journey’s End’ you will support our final production.
