    Black Watch, the play about the rgmt on deployment is starting at The Lowry at Salford tomorrow the 7th for a 3 day run.

    its had some excellent reviews since starting at the fringe festival a few years ago, and has even had a small world tour.

    has anyone seen this or can give a reccomendation on whether to go and watch the play?
    tickets are only £25, is it worth the trip to go see?

  6. Saw it at the Edinburgh Festival, fantastic stuff apart from all the dust

    Got tickets for the London run in June/July at the Barbican, bought tickets for mates who would never spend so much to see 'just a play', I know they will ALL give me the full ticket price afterwards at least :)
     
  7. I couldn't recommend it highly enough - an immensely powerful piece of theatre.
