549: Scots of the Spanish Civil War – Documentary


19 October 2023

Created by Robbie Gordon and Jack Nurse – founders of Wonder Fools and writers of 549, the show was first made in 2018 and has since toured to both town halls and theatre across Scotland.

The project has grown in scale and gathered momentum in each outing with packed houses totalling over 5000 people and a committed following. For the first time audiences will be given a glance of how the production has developed from a story told by Robbie’s grandfather, to meeting the real families of the four men from Prestonpans to the production it is today.

This 15 minute documentary includes interviews with the families, creative team and a glimpse into the legacy of the project including a stained glass window in Prestonpans Labour Club and a plaque to Prestonpans town centre.
