WhatsOnStage logo
Dundee Rep’s award winning musical Sunshine on Leith - based on the songs of The Proclaimers - starring Billy Boyd (Lord of the Rings) is coming to The Mayflower this autumn.

First performed in 2007, Sunshine on Leith is a touching story about the lives of two Scotsmen who leave the army and return home to their families in Leith. Three very different love stories ensue and are intertwined to create a funny, poignant and hugely entertaining show.

A nine-piece band brings to life 21 much loved Proclaimers’ songs including “Letter from America”, “I’m on My Way”, “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” and of course “Sunshine on Leith”.

Craig and Charlie Reid of The Proclaimers said of the show; ‘we are very happy that a theatre company of the quality of Dundee Rep with its fantastic history are producing a musical featuring our music’.

Written by Stephen Greenhorn, who is best known as the creator of BBC Scotland’s River City, Sunshine on Leith won the 2007 TMA Best Musical Award and was nominated in five categories in 2007 Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland.
