About Sunny Afternoon

Following a sold-out run at Hampstead Theatre, Sunny Afternoon, the critically acclaimed musical which tells the story of the early life of Ray Davies and the rise to stardom of The Kinks, opens at the Harold Pinter Theatre.

The Kinks exploded onto the 60’s music scene with a raw, energetic new sound that rocked a nation. But how did that happen, where exactly did they come from and what happened next?

Sunny Afternoon depicts the rise to stardom of The Kinks. Set against the back-drop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative 50s and riotous 60s, this production explores the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of Britain’s most iconic bands and the irresistible music that influenced generations.

★★★★★ 'An irresistibly enjoyable and touching show, and anyone who loves pop music would be mad to miss it' The Daily Telegraph

★★★★★ 'A belter! Funny, stylish, well-performed – it has everything The Kinks had' Daily Mail

★★★★★ 'It gets you, rude and loud, right in the kidneys. And there’s spiky social comment you can groove to' Mail on Sunday

★★★★★ 'Fresh and full of zingy, swinging sixties excitement' Daily Express

★★★★ 'This is a great, very British musical about a great, very British band' The Times

★★★★ 'Fans of the kinks will find this new musical irresistible. And anyone who doesn’t know their work will be bowled over by the sheer quality of the songs' Evening Standard

Sunny Afternoon features The Kinks’s best-loved songs,including:  You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset, Sunny Afternoon and Lola. 

Sunny Afternoon marks the 50th Anniversary year of the band’s debut release.

The Sunny Afternoon cast us is lead by John Dagleish (Ray Davies), George Maguire (Dave Davies), Ned Derrington (Pete Quaife) and Adam Sopp (Mick Avory).  The book is by Joe Penhall,choreography by Adam Cooper and direction by Edward Hall.
