Reviews for 'Sunshine on Leith'

Keith Macpherson and Alyson Orr provide stand-out performances as Rab and Jean. Orrs soft and sweet rendition of the titular tearjerker habitually belted out by emotional Hibs football fans proves to be the evenings best moment.”

The Independent


Keith Macpherson and Alyson Orr are in fine form as Davys parents Rab and Jean, with Orr delivering a beautifully poignant version of Sunshine On Leith.
The Scotsman


Alyson Orr, who has kept her character on a tight rein of defensive bitterness, pulls this off with such integrity, musicality and drama that for this scene alone you should see it. Its a masterpiece that far exceeds what the film achieved.
The Morning Star


Alyson Orr is a particular stand-out as put-upon matriarch Jean (her singing of the shows title track is worthy of the Hibs faithful on Cup Final day)
The National


Alyson Orr gives a lovely rendition of the title song, movingly performed.
The Times


Alyson Orrs Jean balances understatement with the characters life-sized emotional journey.


Alyson Orr gives a particularly moving performance as Jean.
