Outstanding Touring Production for BLACK WATCH
Presse : 'The National Theatre of Scotland's acclaimed production about the Black Watch Regiment's experiences in Iraq returns for a second London run and proves as moving as imaginative as ever with its combination of verbatim theatre, spectacular choreography and deafening battle effects.' The Daily Telegraph

'…the precision and passion of the new ensemble in John Tiffany’s staging is remarkable, while the raw emotion of the piece, with a script by Gregory Burke and stirring music by Davey Anderson, proves deeply affecting.' The Daily Telegraph 4*

'It remains a stunning piece of theatre, violently real and unafraid of lifting the veil on military conflict.' Whatsonstage 4*

'Burke's drama remains a potent, vividly unsentimental portrait of modern military life and its discontents.' Evening Standard 4*

'…the brilliance of this piece is its authenticity.' The Mail on Sunday 4*

'John Tiffany’s astonishing visceral production, played out as if it were a military tattoo, is thrillingly illuminated by Steven Hoggett’s movement choreography that charges it up with raw physical power.' Sunday Express 4*

'…post-Iraq, ‘Black Watch’ stands as the most important dramatic account of the war from the invaders’ perspective.' Time Out Magazine 4*

'This is absolutely the kind of story that the National Theatre of Scotland should and will continue sharing with the world.' The British Theatre Guide

Reviews from previous productions:

'...a wonderful piece of theatre...' The Guardian

‘Black Watch is a necessary reminder of the transporting power that is unique to theater. Other narrative forms — fiction, memoirs, film, television — could tell the story that is told here. But none could summon and deploy the array of artistic tools that is used with such mastery and immediacy.' The New York Times

'In the men's coarse, uncompromising language is wit, wisdom and an absolute absence of apology or self-pity. The effect places beauty alongside brutality and endows the characters with an immense dignity . . . the fusion of text and production is seamless, unsentimental and emotionally devastating.' The Times 5*
