About Local Hero

As of 27 Apr. 2021, Local Hero is cancelled indefinitely at The Old Vic. 

According to The Old Vic: "We have tried to make this work within the theatre's schedule once we reopen but sadly this has just not been possible. We understand that this will be just as disappointing for you as it is for us and we want to thank you for your support of The Old Vic over the last year."

'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.

The hit comedy film Local Hero takes to the 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.
