549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War
I am currently working with Wonder Fools to tour their show 549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War in Scotland in summer 2019.
549 wa first perofrmed at Prestonpans Town Hall and the Citizens Theatre in February 2018. It is a play with songs and storytelling and is a timely insight into one of Scotland’s almost forgotten conflict
Based on a true story, 549 follows four miners from the streets of Prestonpans to the valleys of Spain. They gave up everything they knew: for a land they did not know; for a people they had never met; and for a cause they believed was right.
