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

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 on a remote Irish island? Her compelling story is one of love, hate and the desire for revenge. She must face her demons alone and her tale begs only one question: what would you be prepared to do for the ones you love?

 Frank McGuinness has written a constantly surprising tale that is by turns shocking, humorous and moving.

“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
