Black Watch is 1 hour and 50 minutes long with no intermission. 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.
Hurtling from a poolroom in Fife to an armored wagon in Iraq, Black Watch is based on interview 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 visceral, complex and urgent piece of theatre.
The production has now played to over 200,000 people across three continents and has garnered 22 awards. It has won four Laurence Olivier Awards for Best Director, Best Theatre Choreography, Best Play and Best Sound Design. The play also recently won its first US award with the New York Drama Circle naming Black Watch Best Foreign Play.
