The End of the Journey’ (TEOTJ) is an interdisciplinary site specific installation created by theatre director Pamela Howard OBE, playwright Gillian Plowman, local residents with international reputations, and ADS. Members of the Selsey community will perform and manufacture an evocation of R.C. Sherriff’s experiences in the Great War based on evidence derived from his play ‘Journey’s End’ and Robert Gore – Langton’s critique. TEOTJ is to be staged in the original (1912, currently disused) Pavilion Theatre Selsey, where Sherriff performed in an amateur production of his play, while recovering at his parent’s home in Selsey. Gillian Plowman Inspired by theatre designer Pamela Howard’s vision of a promenade performance through the Pavilion from the darkness into the light, has written vignettes depicting life at home and in the trenches. It will include an excerpt from Sherriff’s play, Journey’s End, and end with a fancy dress ball reminiscent of the time.
