43 - 45 High Street

Following the recent success of The Last Five Years, Green Room, Scotland's new touring musical theatre company, returns with the Scottish premiere of Adam Gwon's Ordinary Days, directed by Michael Richardson and musically directed by Neil Metcalfe. Ordinary Days is a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point). It tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfilment, happiness and love. This is an original musical for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humour and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.
