Goodbar Productions in association with Arcola Theatre

The world premiere of a  passionate new musical  

In 1936, as fascism sweeps across Europe, one country reaches out in its hour of need… and tens of thousands of ordinary people make an extraordinary decision to help. Mothers and fathers, sons and daughters… more than 42,000 travel to Spain from all over the world, and risk their lives for the freedom of others.

Marking the 75th anniversary of the start of the Spanish Civil War, and inspired by first hand accounts, Goodbye Barcelona focuses on Sammy, a young man driven to leave his home in London and join the International Brigades to fight against the fascists.
