“WONDER FOOLS IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE BRUNTON THEATRE AND CITIZENS THEATRE

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

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.

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