On the back of a sell out performance of Calendar Girls, Forest Theatre are performing a jubilant, heartfelt musical about the power of home, the heart, family and love featuring the well known songs of The Proclaimers.
Sunshine on Leith follows the highs and lows of Ally and his friend Davy as they search for normality after returning from a tour in Afghanistan. Families, friendships and life are not all plain sailing in this funny and moving story about love and life.
Ally's marriage proposal is rejected by his childhood sweetheart, a nurse disillusioned with the part-privatised NHS, moves to the US to seek career fulfilment instead. Meanwhile, Davy gets a job in a call centre while his parents war over the discovery, years on, of father's infidelity. Sunshine on Leith is a vibrant, energetic piece of musical theatre, loved by audiences and critics alike.
