Sunshine On Leith

Sunshine on Leith Poster.jpg
As two Edinburgh-born soldiers, Davy and Ally, eagerly return from a tour in Afghanistan, they have to navigate a new reality- normal life! While Davy's sister, Liz, resumes her romance with Ally, Liz's friend and work colleague Yvonne falls for Davy. All seems calm until the fallout from the 25th wedding anniversary of Davy and Liz's parents, Jean and Rab- but will it be alright in the end? Featuring a spectacular smorgasbord of Scottish songs courtesy of The Proclaimers (including I'm On My Way, (I'm Gonne Be) 500 Miles, Misty Blue, Letter From America, Over And Done With), this show strives to sprinkle some sunshine onto the sometimes soggy streets of York! This theatrical extravaganza is not to be missed, so check out their Instagram page for more details and some behind the scenes footage, or go to their YuStart page if you'd like to donate to support CHMS' February Show 2023!
