For fans of the Celtic sound, the Chicago Shakespeare Theater brings the bagpipes back to town with the return of the National Theatre of Scotland's "Black Watch." The 110-minute play (no intermission) tells the story of a Scottish regiment's tour in Iraq, staged at the Chicago Park District's Broadway Armory.

Hedy Weiss wrote of their first engagement last year: "The military may have its own very specific definition of a "theater of war," which involves geographical boundaries and strategic planning. But with the arrival here of "Black Watch," the National Theatre of Scotland's galvanic, angry, heart-shredding, physically thrilling touring production about the experiences of a group of soldiers stationed in Iraq -- that phrase has been redefined."

Black Watch runs from Oct. 10-21 and tickets are $38.
