Think of England
Collard is brilliant as the more naïve and young officer, and I felt myself rooting for him for the majority of the show as well as wanting to know more of his story after the play ended.
★★★★★ The Theatre Tourist
Jack Collard portrayed his character flawlessly, developing it through to the bitter end.
The standout performance is however Jack Collard as JW: his, as horribly clichéd a phrase as it is, quiet intensity nicely offsets both the other characters and the writing itself: if this piece is ‘reflective’ at all it is because of him. And, although I won’t spoil the end, the cool and critical disinterest with which he regards his fellow characters is understandable as analogous to the way he views the world
