Local Hero

The new musical Local Hero in London

Ambitious Texan oil executive Mac MacIntyre arrives in Scotland on a mission to buy a small seaside village and replace it with a refinery. It's the deal of a lifetime, but Mac soon finds out that putting a price on this scenic spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what a village is worth - a Maserati? A million? A marriage? Or is feeling at home worth more than even oil money can buy?

A musical adaptation of the hit 1983 film, Local Hero about a man who sets out to buy a beach, but ends up losing his heart to a village. Now the original creators of the hit film and bestselling soundtrack Bill Forsyth and Mark Knopfler have adapted the film with David Greig to create this eagerly awaited brand new musical stage production.

Directed by John Crowley with movement by Lucy Hind, designs by Scott Pask, projection designs by Luke Halls, lighting by Paule Constable, and sound by Paul Arditti. Book by Bill Forsyth and David Greig, music and lyrics by Mark Knopfler, based on the screenplay of the original film, written and directed by Bill Forsyth, original film produced by David Puttnam.
