About the Show Less...

One woman's struggle with loss, forgiveness, revenge and redemption is explored in this sharp and involving new play. Read More >

The ties that bind can never be broken. For Sal, they hang like a noose around her neck, just loose enough to keep a small but potent flame alive inside.

After a family tragedy has far-reaching consequences for everyone involved, this intense drama shines the spotlight on Sal as she looks back at the circumstances that have led her to leave England for the small island of Valentia on the coast of County Kerry.

Frank McGuinness’ new play, The Match Box, tells a passionate story of one woman’s journey through forgiveness, revenge and redemption.
