Firebrand /ˈfʌɪəbrand/: a person/or people with a penchant for action
Welcome to the site of Firebrand Theatre Company.
Our mission is to forge exceptional, innovative, contemporary theatre exploring epic themes in intimate spaces. We produce our work in the historically dynamic and rebellious land of the Scottish Borders and tour it to urban and rural venues across Scotland and beyond.
Firebrand’s creative aim is to celebrate the wealth of talent in Scotland and beyond by producing:
revivals of unfairly neglected gems
vital one-act plays in non-traditional theatre spaces
premiers of brave new work
“Firebrand, the theatre company based in the Borders, has a knack for identifying new plays that are destined to become contemporary classics.” Allan Radcliffe, The Times, 14/03/2016
