The company that brought It’s A Wonderful LifeThe Iranian Feast and Yørgjin Oxo to Dumfries and Galloway, now brings Brilliance, a show with music made especially for village halls.

Brilliance is a 90-minute theatrical event that celebrates progress and change in a bright new world.

1963, winter. Everyone is gathering in the village hall.

Daisy places her hand on the switch, presses it down, and life is never the same again.

Long after its arrival in the city, the slow process of rural electrification is starting to illuminate every corner and crevice of village life. As the dark evenings hold us in, 240 volts of alternating current and the humble electric light bulb allows us to gather and sing long into the night.
