Etcetera Theatre



Jack, born 1899, stands in the corridor of a large psychiatric hospital in 1972, waiting to be picked up for regular weekend release. He vividly rehearses the never ending round of memories that took him from the safety of his home and neighbourhood to serving as an under-age soldier throughout the main Western Front campaigns. 

Jack was the late uncle (mother’s brother) of Steve Wale, the actor who gives these performances. Stephen spent several years researching family history and the historical background of this Great War story.
