The heralded drama, which sold out both of its previous New York engagements, will play St. Ann's through May 8. Black Watch is authored by Gregory Burke, directed by John Tiffany and has choreography by Tony Award nominee Steven Hoggett (American Idiot). Tiffany and Hoggett are also collaborating on the Broadway musical Once, based on the 2006 Academy Award-winning film.
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 necessitates a large playing area in order to represent an esplanade, with the audience seated on either side of the action.
The National Theatre of Scotland production of Beautiful Burnout, a high-stakes boxing production directed and choreographed by Scott Graham and Hoggett, plays St. Ann's through March 27.
