Honour and glory and babes

by Matthew Bartlett @ 9:01 am

We saw Black Watch. It was not shite. There was nice singing and dancing and jumping around lots of clever and beautiful stage tricks and loud noises and bright lights. But “the structure was muddled and unsatisfying” (EA) and the point of the play is in my view a weak and one: the Black Watch used to fight in good wars but now they’re hired bullies. There was some reflection on what it does to soldiers to have killed people, but no hint that we should all give up the whole shooting match.
