West Yorkshire Playhouse has announced it will stage Sunshine On Leith in 2018.

First developed in 2007 the musical features music by Scottish duo The Proclaimers and has a book by Stephen Greenhorn.

It was subsequently adapted into a film in 2013 starring Jane Horrocks and George MacKay.

The production will be directed by artistic director James Brining, and will be the final production in the Quarry Theatre before the Playhouse’s upcoming redevelopment.

Brining said: “I am thrilled to be directing Sunshine on Leith, a show which is bursting with heart and energy. It’s such an entertaining and emotionally charged musical, which explores ideas of home and identity, falling in love and picking up the pieces when it all falls apart.

Casting is yet to be announced.

Sunshine on Leith runs from 20 April 2018 until 19 May 2018 at West Yorkshire Playhouse.
