Rep look­ing for­ward to more Sun­shine

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

ONE of Scot­land’s best-loved mu­si­cals is re­turn­ing to Dundee for the first time in eight years.

Sun­shine on Leith last vis­ited Dundee Rep in 2010 and will re­turn to the same stage next year.

The show, based on the hit songs of The Pro­claimers, cel­e­brates its tenth an­niver­sary this year.

It was orig­i­nally penned by Stephen Green­horn for t he Dundee Rep En­sem­ble in 2007. This new pro­duc­tion fol­lows the highs and lows of Ally and his friend Davy as they re­turn home to Leith from the army.

Fam­i­lies, friend­ships and life are not plain sail­ing in this funny and mov­ing story about love and life.

Ex­pect to hear a raft of hits from The Pro­claimers’ ex­ten­sive back cat­a­logue in­clud­ing I’m Gonna Be (500 miles), Let­ter From Amer­ica, I’m On My Way and, of course, Sun­shine on Leith.

Af­ter tour­ing sev­eral times, the film pro­duc­tion was re­leased in 2013 to crit­i­cal ac­claim. Di­rected by Dex­ter Fletcher, the film fea­tured ac­tors Ge­orge MacKay, Kevin Guthrie, Peter Mul­lan and Jane Hor­rocks.

The Rep per­for­mances will run from June 11-16. Tick­ets are avail­able on­line at dun­deerep.co.uk.
