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
