Following a sold-out engagement at the Brooklyn venue in 2007, Black Watch returned to St. Ann's Oct. 30 as part of its ongoing international tour. Originally scheduled to play a limited run through Nov. 30, St. Ann's has now extended the production through Dec. 21.
Created from personal testimonies of Scotland's legendary army regiment, the ten-member docudrama incorporates military drills, song, video and historical sequences to reveal an up-close account of the Iraq war. Black Watch is penned by Gregory Burke and directed by John Tiffany.
The physical production necessitates a large playing area in order to represent an esplanade with the audience seated on either side of the action. St. Ann's marks one of the smallest venues the production has played; however, it makes an ideal space as it provides audiences with a closer encounter of the gripping work.
St. Ann's will offer $20 rush tickets, some of which may be partial or obstructed view, one hour prior to each performance.Tickets for Black Watch are currently available by phoning (718) 254-8779 or online at
artsatstanns.org. St. Ann's Warehouse is located at 38 Water Street (between Main and Dock St.) in Brooklyn, New York.
