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
