some parts quite loud; audience is close to action, no headphones needed for the voices (unless to protect your ears!).

Definitely an experience and not the usual linear narrative. I drag my husband to a play every five years or so (I go every week) and he loved this. (-: Fantastically intense and surprisingly funny. Fab Scottish cast + loved the SF Armory Drill...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Thrilling … a necessary reminder of the transporting power that is unique to theater.”  —The New York Times
“A genuine spectacle that revels in its own theatricality and comes replete with music, marching, explosive effects and its own piper.” —Chicago Tribune


Running time is one hour and 50 minutes with no intermission.

Recommended for those age 13 or older. The production contains very strong language, loud explosions and strobe lighting.
