A classic of Scots literature, brilliantly adapted for the stage.

Sunset Song is the first novel in Lewis Grassic Gibbon's Scots Quair trilogy, a rich evocation of growing up on a farm in Scotland in the early 20th century, of being in love and in lust, of getting by as a young mother on your own and of losing your lover in war.

The distinguishing feature of the books and of this dramatisation is the use of the rhythms and vocabulary of Scots to tell the story.

'Succeeds marvellously... puts Scotland's own history onto the stage with vigour, precision and skill... a pure piece of theatre' Guardian

'Does full justice to Grassic Gibbon... a joy and a wrench to watch its blithe unfolding of tragedy and hope' Scotland on Sunday
