Anyone been to see this play? Read a couple of reviews on it this week and it had a massive thumbs up on all counts. I know that critics in the press are quite arty farty so was wondering if anyone with a squaddie perspective had seen it.
I can't get tickets for love nor money! Like yourself, all the reviews I've read have been 'two-thumbs up'. Not exactly a squaddie perspective, but written by someone who was embedded with British troops:
I had the honour of seeing it in Glasgow in April - an excellent and very moving play - which I believe has the full approval of the Black Watch (or 3 Scots as so many seem to want to break the old Scottish regiment names down to now!). Highly recommend it - it was meant to be a one-off National Theatre of Scotland play and has now toured the world twice and is about to go to America again - how they understand the accents I do not know
