In spring 2013, the National Theatre of Scotland’s multi-award winning, landmark production Black Watch returns to Glasgow for just 14 performances. This is a rare opportunity to see this momentous piece of theatre about the famous Scottish regiment.
Hurtling from a pool room in Fife to an armoured wagon in Iraq, Black Watch is based on interviews conducted by Gregory Burke with former soldiers who served in Iraq.
Viewed through the eyes of those on the ground, Black Watch reveals what it means to be part of the legendary Scottish regiment, what it means to be part of the war on terror and what it means to make the journey home again.
John Tiffany’s production makes powerful and inventive use of movement, music and song to create a visceral, complex and urgent piece of theatre.
To date Black Watch has played to tens of thousands of people across four continents and has garnered 22 awards.
Notes for the audience:
Black Watch contains very strong language, loud explosions and strobe lighting.
Black Watch is 1 hour and 50 minutes long with no interval. Due to the highly physical nature of the performance if you need to leave during the show you must be escorted by an usher. You will not be allowed to re-enter the show.
Strictly no latecomers will be admitted.
Advance booking is highly recommended for this production.
An age guide of 16+ is suggested
