Bill Forsyth's 1980s comic drama, Local Hero, receives a stage adaptation at the Old Vic Theatre in 2020. The musical adaptation comes courtesy of Forsyth and playwright David Greig (Dr. Seuss's The Lorax) with music by Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler. In a tale of money versus happiness, the story sees the locals of a small seaside village in Scotland faced with the task of deciding what exactly getting rich would mean when a Texan oil executive offers them the deal of a lifetime.

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
