Originally staged at Dundee Rep in 2007 before being transformed in to the 2013 smash hit feature film adaptation starring Jane Horrocks and Peter Mullan, Sunshine on Leith sees the return of service members Davy and Ally from war overseas, to be confronted with civilian life filled with relationships, blind dates, and new responsibilities.

As the pair embark on intertwining journeys in love, they begin to question what home really means to them as they rediscover their sense of identity.

Sunshine on Leith is co-directed by Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s Artistic Director Elizabeth Newman (Summer Holiday, The Adventures with the Painted People and Faith Healer, Pitlochry Festival Theatre) and the Theatre’s Associate Director Ben Occhipinti (Wind in the Willows, Pitlochry Festival Theatre), designed by Adrian Rees, with lighting by Kate Bonney, musical direction by Richard Reeday, sound design by Shaun Clark, movement by Lesley Hutchison and costume design by Julie Carlin.
