Gregory Burke's new play, Black Watch, focuses on the lives of Scottish soldiers based in Iraq last year. It previews at the Drill Hall in Edinburgh from 1st August for the duration of the Festival. Gregory's previous plays with Faber include Gagarin Way, The Straits and On Tour. His most recent play, Liar, is featured in our new Shell Connections anthology (2006) and it will be performed in the Olivier Theatre on the last night of the Shell Connections Festival at the NT this July. Praise for Gagarin Way: 'Gregory Burke's blistering, brilliant, crazily confident first play... a ton of theatrical dynamite... this is the real thing.' Guardian
