549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War

Description:

Wonder Fools presents
549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War
Sunday 16th June 8pm
£12/£5 U26s 

COMRADES OF THE INTERNATIONAL BRIGADE: YOU CAN GO PROUDLY. YOU ARE HISTORY.
YOU ARE LEGEND.

1936: In villages, towns and cities across Scotland, 549 lives are gradually intertwining.

People of contrasting backgrounds, ideologies and religions; spurred on by their burning passion for equality and freedom, they will form the Scottish ranks of the Spanish Civil War’s legendary International Brigade.

2017: The country is divided. In a small pub in Prestonpans, East Lothian, four millennials are told a story; the true story of four local miners who, 80 years ago, travelled from the streets of Prestonpans to the valleys of Spain. They gave up everything that was familiar: for a land that was not, for a people they had never met and for a cause they believed was right. 

549, a play with songs and storytelling is a timely and important insight into one of Scotland’s almost forgotten conflicts.

Please note: Strong language, re-enactment of war, loud noises, 14+ 

There is a special thrill in seeing the play performed, this week, in Prestonpans Town Hall, a building these men would have known well, in front of the kind of local audience, reliving part of their own history, that has been thin on the ground in Scottish theatre since the demise of 7:84 Scotland and Wildcat
