The Match Box

Firebrand in co-production with The Byre Theatre and Heart of Hawick
The Match Box

Firebrand present the Scottish premiere of a breathtaking new monologue by one of Ireland’s greatest dramatists, Frank McGuinness (Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme).

The ties that bind us can never be broken, and the shocking events that bring Sal to exile on a remote Irish island are as unexpected as they are brutal. Her compelling journey through grief, revenge and the temptations of evil begs only one question: what would you do if pushed to the very edge?

Based in the Scottish Borders, Firebrand tour award-winning contemporary theatre productions from writers such as Rona Munro, David Greig, David Harrower and Lucy Prebble and present their first production at the Citizens Theatre.

Directed by Firebrand’s Director of Productions Richard Baron, who also directs Bold Girls at the Citizens this spring.
