Black Watch - US Tour 2007
Written by Gregory Burke
Directed by John Tiffany
The triumph of the 2006 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Black Watch is a taut and uncompromising piece of theatre about the service of Scotland's Black Watch military regiment in the Iraq War.
Based on interviews with Black Watch troops, the play follows the disassembling of the esteemed Scottish regiment over the course of its final tour in Iraq.
John Tiffany's production makes powerful and inventive use of movement, music and song to create a visceral, complex and urgent piece of theatre.
