About this show

Written by Gregory Burke and directed by John Tiffany, Black Watch is a Scottish Army regiment's eye-view of the war in Iraq. It is the first piece of theater about the war to tell the story from the point of view of the soldiers, which it does via docudrama, video sequences, song, dance, panoramic historical sequences, an extraordinary sound score and in-the-moment acting. The ten-man cast is a versatile assembly of actors who, while moving in synchronicity with drill-time precision, is each and every one a distinctive blend of fears, ambitions and confusion.
