TICKETS are still available for Firebrand’s latest production, White Rose, at the Heart of Hawick, Melrose’s The Wynd Theatre and the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles.

The Borders-based theatre company present the powerful triangular love story about men and women fighting in the air, on the ground and in the bedroom. Unseen since its critically-acclaimed debut at the 1985 Edinburgh Festival, Peter Arnott’s play tells the story of celebrated female Russian World War II fighter ace, Lily Litvak, the so-called White Rose of Stalingrad.

Directed by Richard Baron, the Scottish cast features Robert Jack, Lesley Harcourt from last year’s popular Firebrand production of Being Norwegian and Alison O’Donnell, soon to be seen starring opposite Douglas Henshall in the BBC1 drama Shetland.

White Rose has a preview night on Thursday, February 21, followed by performances on February 22 and 23, at Heart of Hawick, and is at the Eastgate on March 8 and The Wynd from March 10 to 12.
