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).

The show is recommended as age 12+ for content as there is some strong language as well as references to sex and drugs. Minimum age for entry is 5+. The show is also quite loud, so some customers may prefer to avoid the very front of the Stalls.

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

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.

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!

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!
