Superb show. Not seen the film so didn’t know the story. Cried during rendition of Sunshine on Leith. Don't know the name of the actress but she was brilliant. An absolute WOW

We were so looking forward to seeing this show. Lovely setting but unfortunately due to the noise from the bar next door to the venue and being near the back of the audience you couldn’t hear when the actors were talking at all. People behind us spoke to the some of the team but it didn’t make any difference ( they walked out) so only heard when they were singing which was a shame when the actors have worked so hard to put on the show. Sound engineers at fault here. Mics should of been adjusted .

Sitting in the sunshine (yes in Edinburgh!) in a car park in the shadow of the castle, I couldn't have spent a more enjoyable 90 minutes. Whether you're a Proclaimers fan or not, it's a great show.

Great show, very professional . Only spoilt by lack of sound at times and cool wind . Wrap up warm but definitely go and see it

Really enjoyed the show, very uplifting and more emotional than I remember it being. Great acting and singing, though on a few occasions - mainly solo bits performed by minor characters - the mics weren't turned up loud enough for us to hear properly.

Unfortunately the couple seated in front of us kept their umbrella up until the rain stopped about half way through the performance, so those of us seated behind them were only able to see half the stage; a shame the organisers didn't restrict umbrellas to only the back row.

My favourite show of the fringe! Great pace, fab music of course beautifully performed. Real feel good experience- left uplifted and smiling ear to ear. Well done the company

Uplifting show!

There were a few problems with the sound on my visit (the music was louder than the singing a few times making it a little tricky to understand) and the way MultiStory enacted the pandemic restrictions was a bit stressful compared to other venues, but the performances themselves were fantastic.

Great job from all the actors and this show will put a smile on your face to last the rest of the day long.
