Go see Black Watch! If you’re reading this on Friday morning – June 13 – there are 5 more performances. The play is based on interviews with soldiers – a tank crew – who served in Iraq with the Scottish Black Watch Regiment.

As is to be expected with these things, the launch of this puppy (aka website) has been a bit rocky. There’s a number of contributing factors, ranging from there being no time to breath, to a lack of available breathing time.
Unfortunately that means that there hasn’t been a ton of content up lately, and also, the layout is still the very very basic layout/design we started with. But not to worry my fine friends! Soon there will be a new design! Soon there will be new content! Soon there will be new… no, wait, that’s about it, new design, new content.
The new launch will be this weekend, so that we can coincide with all the great stuff being put on by LuminaTO and make sure we’re live for Fringe.
This of course will not be a ‘final’ version. First of all, it’s the web, there are no final versions, but also, this is a growing baby, we’ll be tweaking it along the way – so, if you have any suggestions or things you’d like to see, just let us know.
Stay tuned folks!
