About Wild Rose

World Premiere, A New Musical

The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh, Caledonia Productions and Gavin Kalin Productions present Wild Rose, A New Musical

There is only one thing in Rose-Lynn’s life that has ever made sense: country music.

Fresh out of jail for past mistakes, and bursting with incredible raw talent, charisma and cheek, the free-spirited Rose-Lynn dreams of escaping Glasgow to make it as a singer in Nashville.

But her mother Marion has had a bellyful, insisting that she settle down, ditch the fantasy, and focus on raising her two young kids.

Rose-Lynn reluctantly agrees to take a cleaning job and finds an unlikely champion in her new boss, Susannah, bringing her dream closer than ever. Now Rose-Lynn must decide if risking everything will really pave the road to Nashville.

From Nicole Taylor, BAFTA-winning writer of the original film and global sensation One Day, and renowned director John Tiffany (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Once), Wild Rose is an uplifting and heart-warming new musical about motherhood, dreams, and finding your three chords and the truth.

This world premiere production will feature songs from country music legends including Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Wynonna Judd, Chris Stapleton, Caitlyn Smith, The Chicks, and Patty Griffin, alongside the film’s award-winning original song Glasgow (No Place Like Home).

Based on the film written by Nicole Taylor, directed by Tom Harper and produced by Fable Pictures.
