i went to see this at the Rothes Halls in Glenrothes, it was the best production i have EVER seen...and i am a drama student. It was so masterfully written and staged. The acting was tremendous, the directing fantastic, the writing Amazing! I truly belive that The Black Watch is the first masterpeice of 21st century Theatre

I've seen the play of Black Watch on DVD a few times, and adored it. It was only when I saw it live in April 2013 that I truly fell for the show - it's a masterpiece.
I bought the play as soon as I saw it live. It's a great read and I love picking it up and acting out scenes from time to time. It's brilliant to read and the hard hitting story of these young boys serving their country in Iraq is one that needs to be read.
It contains the full play, with director John Tiffany's production notes throughout, so you can get a feel for how it looked on stage. It also has all the songs which I'm constantly singing!
If you have or haven't seen it live, I urge you to get this play. It's something you'll read or see and will never ever forget. One of those things that make you proud to be Scottish.
