Black Watch (highly acclaimed Olivier Award winning show) - tickets on sale now!

The Norfolk and Norwich Festival, in association with the University of East Anglia, is delighted to present just 5 opportunities to see the National Theatre of Scotland’s multi-award winning drama Black Watch in England.

Since its very first performances, Black Watch has received standing ovations and enjoyed sold-out performances everywhere it has appeared. To date, Black Watch has played to hundreds of thousands of people across three continents and has won a staggering 22 awards in the UK, US and internationally.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see this highly acclaimed Olivier Award winning show at the UEA's Sportspark in April 2013.

"Full of intelligent, heart twisting ambivalence, Black Watch is a landmark event"

The Independent



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.

"Few will come away untouched by this thrilling, raw, challenging and masterful piece of work" 

The Times *****

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 still as relevant as it was at its 2006 premiĆ©re.
