The West End’s New ‘Great British Musical’ (The Times), Sunny Afternoon, has opened to huge critical the Harold Pinter Theatre.

★★★★★ 'It’s a guitar-riffing, amp-smashing drum-whacker of a night' Daily Mail 

★★★★★ 'A Dazzling Production. A Heady Celebration of Quintessentially English Talent' The Guardian

With Music and Lyrics by Ray Davies, a new Book by Joe Penhall and Direction by Edward Hall, 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.

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).

Margaret Cammish29th October

Absolutely brilliant!! Fantastic casting too - the band even sounding and resembling their respective characters (I have seen The Kinks live) - thoroughly enjoyed the evening!

David Gardner29th October

bit too loud, first half was rather slow, second half was much better, 18pounds for four ice creams daylight ROBBERY.

Pandora Ind28th October

Alicja Keplinger23rd October

Too many dialogues, sorry

John Swap22nd October

Absolutely brilliant .. whilst i knew quite a lot of the Kinks 'story' this was fantastic. When the goup got into the hits it was like you were there in fhe 60's ... really really good ... looking to go again when the tour hits Brighton. This was so good .

Dominic Siracusa18th October

Mark Spittle16th October

Second time that I have seen the show, it was just as entertaining as the first time. Great live music lots of energy and the cast looked like they were really enjoying themselves. I am aware that Sunny Afternoon will soon be going on tour around the country and I will definately go to a performance at a local theatre. I would recommend the show to anyone that wants a good night out.

Anthea MacMurray15th October

Brilliant show! The Kinks music is timelessly brilliant, and the guys who played the band, and all of the other actors and actresses, were all extremely talented. The music that was performed sounded amazing. Best show I've ever seen!

Mrs A M McEwan13th October

The show was superb, a fabulous performance.A couple of scenes were enacted at front of stage that were impossible to see from my seat on balcony( admittedly very cheap seats). I fully recommend the show!
