Black Watch finds a venue

Black Watch is going in to the Barbican.

Like most people who have seen it, I found it a brilliant piece of theatre.

It is good news that it has found a London venue although a slight shame it never managed to get a drill hall or to get permission for a space next to the Imperial War Museum (because of dog walkers?!).

It does also highlight that finding suitable spaces/venues for theatre pieces (particular, the non-straighforward ones) is difficult.

Perhaps, it would be good to have a structure like the Serpentine pavilion, which would allow a different temporary space every summer for theatre.
