‘549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War’ - a play with songs and storytelling, is a timely insight into one of Scotland’s almost forgotten conflicts, and 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. The date is 1936, and in villages, towns and cities across Scotland, 549 lives are gradually intertwining. People of different backgrounds, ideologies and religions. Spurred on by their burning passion for equality and freedom, they would form the Scottish ranks of the Spanish Civil War’s legendary International Brigade.
