Scotland's most loved literary heroine Chris Guthrie is brought to the stage in this thrilling, contemporary adaptation.

Faced with a choice between a harsh farming life and a world of learning, spirited Chris Guthrie chooses to remain in her rural community, bound by her deep love of the land. From harrowing family roots and crushing poverty, to stirring love and the awakening of self, Chris's coming-of-age journey to womanhood is one of enduring strength, persistent survival and joyful renewal. But everything changes with the arrival of the First World War when Chris finds her life altered beyond recognition. Exploring human resilience and the loss of a way of life, through a scorching female protagonist, Sunset Song has a profoundly lyrical intensity that echoes throughout the years and still resonates today.

Voted Best Scottish Book of all Time by the public in 2005, this revitalised and reimagined production brings together an award-winning Scottish creative team including writer Morna Young (Lost at Sea, The Stamping Ground), director Finn den Hertog (The Enemy, Square Go) and composer Finn Anderson (Islander, A Mother's Song) to tell this sweeping story of heart-breaking love, and a land and people in turmoil. With rich Scots language text, dynamic and physically charged staging, and raw and vivid live music, Sunset Song is a celebration of Lewis Grassic Gibbon's symphonic, astounding and ever relevant novel.
