Who watches the Black Watch watch?

Black Watch has won the South Bank Show Award for theatre, giving me a topical way into talking about the building-less nature of the National Theatre of Scotland in a Guardian blog.

Don't suppose it's healthy to write blogs about blogs, but I've been trying to find a place for those Nicholas Hytner quotes since October. Glad they've finally got a home of their own.

Earlier this week, I did another blog about the imminent departure of Paul Gudgin from the Fringe Office.
