    Scottish Premiere

    Firebrand in co-production with The Byre Theatre, St Andrews and Heart of Hawick

    Following the success of Iron and Outlying Islands, award-winning Firebrand presents the Scottish premiere of an acclaimed new monologue by one of Ireland's greatest dramatists, Frank McGuinness.

    The ties that bind 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 story begs only one question; what would you do if pushed to the very edge?
