Preview: The Match Box at The Omnibus Theatre

The acclaimed Strange Fish Theatre Company (Quietly, The Turn of the Screw) returns to Omnibus with The Match Box, an extraordinary play by one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights. Frank McGuinness has written a constantly surprising tale that is by turns shocking, humorous and moving.

And she grew to be a girl, my daughter, my Mary. Sing a song, Mary. Sing a song for Grandma and Granda.

The ties that bind us can never be broken and a potent flame burns in the heart of a mother. Why is Londoner Sal hiding out in a remote Irish island? Her compelling story is one of love, hate and the desire for revenge. Her tale begs only one question: what would you be prepared to do for the ones you love?

“It is rare to find storytelling as sharply and simply involving as this” ★★★★ Daily Telegraph
“Frank McGuinness’ new play, The Match Box, is a stunner” The Observer
“So brutally powerful it knocks the breath out of your body” ★★★★ The Times

The Match Box is at The Omnibus Theatre 29th October to 17th November 2019.
