Scots National Theatre – Maybe (Just Maybe) It’ll Turn Out Alright

There’s been no shortage of worry in Scotland about how the new National Theatre would take shape. Maybe that’s because of the many years it took to get the idea off the ground. “But now that the National Theatre of Scotland is beginning to take shape, even the sharpest critics of the idea are being forced to concede that those fears may have been misplaced. For one thing, the organisation is being set up on an innovative commissioning model designed to ensure that the NTS works through Scotland’s existing companies, investing its budget in developing world-class new projects with them, and helping them to raise their game with every new production.”
