The play is based on R.C. Sherriff’s real-life experiences during the war.

He was an officer in the East Surrey Regiment and wounded in the battle of Passchendaele in 1917.

In the play Captain Stanhope is nervous and exhausted after three years on the front line.

Now, as he and his officers sit in their dug-out awaiting attack, the full horror and futility of trench warfare unfolds.
