About the Book

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

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 burning inside.

A passionate story of love and hate, The Match Box by Frank McGuinness premiered at the Liverpool Playhouse in June 2012.
