Celebrated as one of the defining moments of Scottish storytelling, John Crowley directs a new musical stage adaptation of the hit 1983 film Local Hero by Bill Forsyth and David Greig with music and lyrics by legendary Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler.

Hot-shot Texan oil executive Mac MacIntyre is dispatched to the small seaside village of Ferness on the west coast of Scotland on a mission to acquire the village, beach and surrounding area for his company Knox Oil and replace it with a refinery.

For the locals it’s the deal of a lifetime, but Mac soon finds that putting a price on this scenic spot is more complicated than he originally bargained for. As he presses to close the deal that will spell the end of the quaint little village he has come to love, the villagers must decide whether their home is worth more than even oil money can buy...
