Restless Natives, the Stage Musical is based on the classic 1980’s film which was re-released by Studiocanal in 2021 to critical acclaim. Adapted by the original creative team, with music by Big Country and original songs by Tim Sutton and Ninian Dunnett, the feelgood comedy tells the story of two young Edinburgh lads, struggling to see a future, who hatch a marvellously irresponsible plot to achieve fame and fortune.
