(Ben Brantley’s article appeared in The New York Time, 4/22.)

The story hasn’t changed. How could it have? It’s history now, the sort of history that repeats itself endlessly.

Yet the touring production of “Black Watch,” a group portrait of Scottish soldiers in Iraq that was first seen here in 2007, still feels as fresh and raw as the recruits portrayed by its young, open-faced new cast members. These lads of the Black Watch, a centuries-old regiment of the Scottish Highlands, are as spontaneously foul-mouthed, exuberant, angry and frightened as they were four years ago. And stationed once again at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, they are more likely than ever to break your heart.
