Sunset Song (stage version)

By Lewis Grassic Gibbon Adapted by Alastair Cording

Paperback £8.99£7.19

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.

This stage version of Sunset Song by Alastair Cording was first performed at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow, in 1991.
