Journey's End by R.C. Sherriff
Director. David Evans Rees
King's Head Theatre
January - February 1998
"...Samuel West is extremely good as Stanhope, the officer who is hanging in there thanks to the whisky bottle. West can underplay smoking and reading and half listening to a conversation to the point at which he has our full attention..."
"...Samuel West gives one of the best performances in London on stage, at the Kings Head Theatre in Islington, in the World War One drama Journey's End. His officer stuck in the trenches is dead behind the eyes and harrowing; he leads an excellent cast."
"...West's superb performance, all wounded sensitivity, lonely terror and tightly coiled self-control..."
