  • Hit comedy film Local Hero takes to The Old Vic stage as John Crowley (Brooklyn, The Goldfinch) directs a new musical adaptation by Bill Forsyth and David Greig (Dr. Seuss's The Lorax) with music and songs by the legendary Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits).

    'Knox Oil will consider any price.'
    'I tell you what, Mister Mac, how about this: a dollar for every grain of sand in my hand?'

    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 that putting a price on this beautiful spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what their home is worth.

    This production is presented by special arrangement with Neal Street Productions and Patrick Daily
