The Match Box

About The Match Box

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 Grieg, 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.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Match Box are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
