Collaborators in the Olivier

"Collaborators" has transferred to the Olivier, a reason for new reviews. The London Evening Standard's Fiona Mountford focusses mainly on the performance by Alex and Simon Russell Beale. She feels:
"Russell Beale is deliciously droll but it’s Jennings who steals the honours with his portrait of a touchingly conflicted and vulnerable man who slowly realises that his seeming salvation will be the thing that damns him."
