Wonder Fools: 549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War

Date: 7th Feb 2018 - 10th Feb 2018

Every day

Location: Prestonpans Town Hall

Time: 19:30

549, a play with songs and storytelling, is a timely insight into one of Scotland's almost forgotten conflicts. Presented as part of The Brunton, Musselburgh's out and about programme.

Wonder fools

1939, 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, will form the Scottish ranks of the Spanish Civil War's legendary International Brigade. This true story 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.

"Forceful mix of factual information, fictional storytelling, movement and reflection" The Scotsman

Strong language.
