Based on the popular film, with music by Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits).
Musical version of Local Hero
This new musical version of Local Hero will win devotees from admirers of the beloved Bill Forsyth film as well as those coming fresh to this story. The book by David Greig features new songs by Mark Knopfler (formerly of Dire Straits).
It’s 1983 and hotshot Texan oil executive Mac MacIntyre is dispatched to the tiny Scottish fishing village of Ferness with $30million in his pocket to buy the locals’ homes and put a refinery in their place.
The villagers aren’t averse to cashing in on the black gold and Gordon, the local hotelier-lawyer-accountant-ceilidh organiser, proves a surprisingly tough negotiator.
But they’ve all overlooked one very important person. And as the northern lights dance in the skies, Mac comes to realise that not everything of value is for sale.
