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

2022 - The country is in crisis

In a small pub in Prestonpans, East Lothian, four millennials are told a story

The true story of four local miners who, over 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 insight into one of Scotland’s almost forgotten conflicts


"549 is a beautifully moving tale of friendship, bravery and sacrifice. It recounts a true story that deserves to be heard, not just because its an important and oft forgotten part of history, but because it's a fascinating and enjoyable tale to boot" ~ The Skinny
