30 July, 1966. As Bobby Moore lifts the world-cup trophy, a hundred thousand fans in Wembley are singing Sunny Afternoon in unison; the Kinks' number one hit that rocked the nation that summer. How did that happen? And how did The Kinks end up not only invading America but also being banned from playing there at the height of their career?

These questions and many more are answered as the story of battling brothers Ray and Dave Davies, Pete Quaife and Mick Avory takes the stage in this acclaimed and exhilarating production, featuring the band's classic songs as written by head Kink Ray Davies, book by Joe Penhall, direction by Edward Hall and design by Miriam Buether.  

Sunny Afternoon draws you into the whirlpool of the legendary North London quartet's famously volatile relationships and highly questionable career moves. Set against the backdrop of a Britain caught mid-swing between the conservative fifties and riotous sixties, the show traces the euphoric highs and agonising lows of one of the country's most iconic bands, and pulsates with the irresistible music that influenced a generation and still resonates today.
