Treasured by a generation in Scotland and loved far and wide, Local Hero is one of the defining moments of Scottish storytelling.

"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.

Ambitious Texan oil executive Mac MacIntyre arrives in Scotland on a mission to buy a small seaside village and replace it with a refinery. It’s the deal of a lifetime, but Mac soon finds out that putting a price on this scenic spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what a village is worth –a Maserati? A million? A marriage? Or is feeling at home worth more than even oil money can buy?

The musical is based on the 1983 indie film Local Hero, written and directed by Bill Forsyth. The film was produced on a budget of just £3 million[2] and won several awards including the 1984 BAFTA Award for Best Direction[3] and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Screenplay.

On 3 February 2018, it was announced the play would receive its world premiere in spring 2019, thirty five years after the original film. It is expected to make its world premiere at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, before transferring to The Old Vic with whom it is a coproduction.

Local Hero began previews at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh on 14 March 2019, with an official opening night on 23 March, booking for a limited period until 20 April. Due to demand the run was extended until 4 May. Notable casting included Damian Humbley as Mac, Katrina Bryan as Stella, Matthew Pidgeon as Gordon, and Simon Rouse as Happer.

The production will transfer to The Old Vic, London where it is scheduled to begin previews 18 June 2020,[20] with an official opening night on 1 July, booking for a limited period until 22 August.
