More on the National Theatre of Scotland

The new-look website of the all-new National Theatre of Scotland (NTS) is up and running. Follow the link here: National Theatre of Scotland And it's looking pretty good. Inevitably there are some areas still to be developed, but for now there's extensive details of the organisation's first few shows (including dates for Grid Iron's Roam, previously not announced) and some insight into the behind-the-scenes workings of the organisation. I've just finished an article for Hi-Arts, the Highlands and islands web journal, about the NTS opening production, Home, which takes place in ten locations around Scotland. In the Highlands and islands, you can see performances on a Shetland ferry and in a doll's house in a shop in Stornoway. The only frustration will be not getting to see all ten shows - it's physically impossible to see more than a handful. Keep track of new articles on my website
