Unfortunately I will be unable to escort you to the theatre FMOP, due to engagements in my rural enclave. I read a rave review of it and have put it on my things to do list...along with about 300 other things curses!

It would have been lovely having your company Cuddles, I hope you do get to see it .......... and work through your to-do list!

Any takers? This is a free ticket to a must-see sell-out play.

Time Out ****** The Guardian***** The Sunday Times***** Metro***** Evening Standard***** Sunday Telegraph*****

'One of the few shows anywhere in the UK that could be described as perfect; it was a vision of how theatre could be.’ The Daily Telegraph

Multi-award-winning Black Watch received unanimous critical acclaim at the 2006 Edinburgh Festival and on its subsequent Scottish and international tours. Hurtling from a pool room in Fife to an armoured wagon in a war zone, the play 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. A visceral, complex and urgent piece of theatre.

Fairmaid yes - I'd love to see the play; I have been reading the reviews, and it would be great to have company. Poppy got in before me, so I'm pleased to have the chance. I have PM'd you.

Saw it Tuesday, three encores and a standing ovation at the Barbican from an audience you would not expect to appreciate its subject matter (Lloyd Webber was two seats away from me gushing like a school girl).

Top, top notch stuff and if that ticket has not gone I will more than willingly go again

Ah well enjoy, which you will.

Also DO CHECK OUT the’ Queen and Country’ exhibition in the foyer, it’s the big box thing with vertical drawers. An artist has produced a major series of stamps of our recent War Dead, he is collecting signatures to get the Stamps officially released. You can sign it next to the exhibition.

Just to say a big big thank you to fairmaidofperth for the FRONT ROW seat, Amazing play, amazing performance, restored my faith in theatre as an art form apart from anything else.
We met a couple of the actors just outside the Barbican on our way out and had a little chat and got programmes signed. :D

Across from me I could see an actor who is in things like Midsommer Murders, but whose name I cannot recall, BUT the actors said that Keira Knightley was in the audience - somewhere.

Also saw the Queen and Country exhibit - powerful stuff. Petition signed.
