Local Hero archiveBased on the screenplay of the original film. 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 out that putting a price on this scenic spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what a village is worth - a Maserati? A million? A marriage? Or is feeling at home worth more than even oil money can buy? World Premiere. A wry comedy about a man who sets out to buy a beach, but ends up losing his heart to a village, Bill Forsyth's magical Local Hero takes to the stage with new music and songs by the legendary Mark Knopfler.
