    www.nationaltheatrescotland.com www.twitter.com/NTSonline 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

                www.nationaltheatrescotland.com www.twitter.com/NTSonline Tweeters, bloggers and instagrammers were invited to document a special sneak preview of Macbeth on Wednesday, 13th June 2012 at the Tramway theatre in Glasgow. Multi award-winning actor Alan Cumming returns to Glasgow for a virtuoso performance in Shakespeare’s chilling tale of desire, ambition, and the supernatural. This bold re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Scottish play is set in a psychiatric unit, focusing on a solitary patient who is channeling the story of Macbeth. CCTV cameras capture the patient’s every move as he is inhabited in turn by each of the characters and the clinical tiled walls of the unit come to life in a visually stunning multi-media theatrical experience, where nothing is as it seems. Cast includes Alan Cumming, Myra McFadyen and Ali Craig. An age guide of 14+ is suggested. Please note there is brief nudity in the production.
