Local Hero

“We’re gonna be rich… filthy dirty rich!”

A wry comedy about a man who sets out to buy a beach, but ends up losing his heart to a village, Bill Forsyth’s magical Local Hero takes to the stage with new music and songs by the legendary Mark Knopfler.

Scott Pask’s enveloping sky piece provided a vast canvas for the skies that hang over Northern Scotland transporting us from Texan Oil and stocks to Northern Lights that dance above the performance.
