Support National Theatre of Scotland America Inc
Please consider supporting the National Theatre of Scotland and help us continue to create unforgettable theatrical experiences for audiences across America and beyond.
Founded in 2006, the National Theatre of Scotland has swiftly established itself as one of the world’s most exciting theatre companies. Our commitment to supporting new work combined with the ability to attract some of the world’s most talented artists to collaborate with us has earned the Company a global reputation for creating theatre that is contemporary, confident and unforgettable. We were the first national theatre company in the world to take the radical decision not to have its own building and to exist entirely as a touring company. This unique ‘theatre without walls’ model has allowed us to share some of our best work with American audiences.
The National Theatre of Scotland first came to the U.S. in 2007, bringing Black Watch, a new play written by Gregory Burke and directed by John Tiffany, which followed the experiences of Scottish soldiers in Iraq. The response was extraordinary: on its first visit it picked up a New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play, garnered five star reviews and played to packed houses every night.
In the short time since then, we’ve taken a huge range of work to the U.S. including our bold re-imagining of Macbeth performed by Alan Cumming, the acclaimed family show The Wolves in the Walls, a daring and outrageous new version of Euripides’ The Bacchae, the thrilling physicality of Beautiful Burnout and the live music and supernatural storytelling of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart.
As well as our enduring gratitude, we are pleased to be able to offer special benefits which take our supporters to the heart of the National Theatre of Scotland's activity both in the U.S. and overseas. These include:
- Invitations to National Theatre of Scotland America performances, events and receptions
- Details and ticket offers for National Theatre of Scotland productions in Scotland and the UK
- A copy of our annual Season Brochure and information on U.S. productions mailed to you directly
- Quarterly e-updates from the National Theatre of Scotland
- Acknowledgement on the U.S Donors section of our website

A personal message from the Chair of National Theatre of Scotland America Inc.
Three years ago I was asked if I would be interested in serving on the U.S Board of the National Theatre of Scotland. While I was honored by the query, it was important for me to see a production before I could determine whether there was a helpful role I could play! An invitation to Black Watch ensued, following which I contacted the Company and committed whatever service in whatever form for however long the National Theatre of Scotland might wish to call upon me.
And I consider it a profound privilege to be associated with an organization which is fearlessly forging a path to the future through embodying everything essential to creating work and culture that make meaningful and exhilarating theatre.
I hope that you will become a part of the National Theatre of Scotland’s global community of supporters. We value our connection to our audiences around the world and your presence at our performances and our events makes you an integral part of the National Theatre of Scotland story.
