About Sunny Afternoon
The West End’s New "Great British Musical"(The Times) is now winner of the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Musical. Sunny Afternoon also won Oliviers for Best Actor (John Dagliesh), Best Supporting Actor (George Maguire) and Outstanding Achievement in Music (Ray Davies).
With Music and Lyrics by Ray Davies (Olivier nominee for Outstanding Achievement in Music), 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.
The Kinks exploded onto the 60s 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?
This “exhilarating, hugely enjoyable new musical” (Financial Times) features many of the band’s hits, including: You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset, Dedicated Follower of Fashion, All Day and All of the Night, Lola, Sunny Afternoon and many more.
