Theatre REVIEW: Sunshine on Leith - ★★★★★

Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Capital Theatres present

Sunshine On Leith

Join us to see the King’s go out on a high before the theatre closes to undergo an exciting redevelopment!

With a soundtrack from world-renowned Leithers The Proclaimers, Sunshine on Leith is both a funny and moving story about Davy and Ally, two soldiers from Edinburgh returning to their hometown after serving in war-torn countries, who are questioning what ‘home’ really means. This is a fresh new production of an audience favourite which is sure to delight yet again.

Features hits I’m On My Way, Letter from America, I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) and of course the title song Sunshine on Leith.



King's Theatre, Edinburgh until 18th June



Mylo (Age 13) - ★★★★★

"Sunshine on Leith was a very entertaining performance that balanced comedy with sadness, the story was based on songs from the Proclaimers and those songs were incorporated very well. The musical aspect was fantastic with live musicians on stage and singing which was really good. Obviously the songs were great as well. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the performance as it was very lively and by the end, everyone was on their feet dancing. The actors were fabulous and did a great job of conveying the emotions of the characters, they worked well together and it was obvious that they were proud to be performing the show. Achieving a standing ovation the show truly deserves 5 stars."
