    Since its very first performances, Black Watch has received standing ovations and enjoyed sold-out performances everywhere it has appeared, nationally and internationally.

    Hurtling from a pool room in Fife to an armoured wagon in Iraq, Black Watch is based on 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 that is as relevant now as ever.

    To date Black Watch has played to tens of thousands of people across three continents and has garnered 22 awards, including four Laurence Olivier Awards - Best Director, Best Theatre Choreography, Best Play and Best Sound Design - and the National Theatre of Scotland won its first US award with the New York Drama Circle naming Black Watch Best Foreign Play.

    Notes for the audience:
    Black Watch contains very strong language, loud explosions and strobe lighting.
    Black Watch is 1 hour and 50 minutes long with no interval. 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

    The Guardian * * * *

    "Like Black Watch before it, Beautiful Burnout has all of the ingredients of a knock-out hit."
    The Independent * * * *

    "You have to overcome fear. The world is your obstacle course. You see things other people do not."
    Tyson Cecka, traceur.

    Jump fuses physical theatre, storytelling and the movement discipline of parkour into a fluid and freshly devised theatrical production. Jump is more of a gig than a show; where the audience are invited to share in the music choices, personal stories and discoveries of two companies of young men as they journey from boyhood to manhood. Using the grace, flow and style of parkour, the Jump companies explore the challenges and obstacles they face growing up in an age of unprecedented change.

    Over 1000 secondary school boys from across Fife and Glasgow were introduced to the core Parkour values of critical thinking, self-discipline, determination, and teamwork. They explored what it is to overcome the physical, mental and emotional obstacles encountered in the process of initiation into the world of manhood. They also accepted the challenge to take some risks, be creative and make some brilliant theatre. In doing so they were invited to follow the advice of Sebastien Foucan, founder of the parkour movement, and ‘Find your way.’

    The 50+ pupils taking part in Jump include boys from Glenrothes High School, Auchmuty High School, Kirkcaldy High School, Kirkland High School, Woodmill High School in Fife and Lochend High School and St Mungo’s Academy in Glasgow.
    Join them to share what they discovered.

    A National Theatre of Scotland co-production with ON at Fife, in partnership with Strathclyde Police, Fife Education Service and Fife Community Safety Partnership.
