Sunset Song

By Lewis Grassic Gibbon
Adapted by Alastair Cording
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781854597724, 96 pages, January 2004


A classic of Scots literature, brilliantly adapted for the stage.

Sunset Song is the first novel in Lewis Grassic Gibbon's Scots Quair trilogy, a rich evocation of growing up on a farm in Scotland in the early-20th century, of being in love and in lust, of getting by as a young mother on your own and of losing your lover in war.

The distinguishing feature of the books - and of this dramatisation - is the use of the rhythms and vocabulary of Scots to tell the story.


"Succeeds marvellously... puts Scotland's own history onto the stage with vigour, precision and skill... a pure piece of theatre."

- Guardian

"Does full justice to Grassic Gibbon... a joy and a wrench to watch its blithe unfolding of tragedy and hope."

- Scotland on Sunday
