549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War
About 549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War

Wonder Fools in association with Brunton Theatre present 549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War.

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.

This true story follows four miners from the streets of East Lothian 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: Scots of the Spanish Civil War, a new play with songs and storytelling, is a timely insight into one of Scotland’s almost forgotten conflicts.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for 549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
