Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival in summer 2006, unanimous critical acclaim and a stunning audience response, the award-winning Black Watch is on tour.
Hurtling from a pool room in Fife to an armoured wagon in Iraq, Black Watch is based on recent 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.
Black Watch has won a Herald Angel, a Scotsman Fringe First, a Best Theatre
Writing Award from The List and a Stage Award for Best Ensemble
