Synopsis: The long hot summer of 1976 was a heady time of sweltering heat, glam rock, flared trousers, long hair and platform shoes. From the producer of "Billy Elliot" come the musical rites-of-passage HUNKY DORY, set in a south Wales public school during that summer. Minnie Driver stars as Viv who has left London and her thespian aspirations, to work as a drama teacher in the local high school of her south Wales home town. Determined to fire up her hormonal, apathetic teenage charges, she sets about staging a rock musical based on Shakespeare's The Tempest for the school's end of year show. Battling the summer teenage distractions of love, lust and the local lido, Viv perseveres and rallies the group to express themselves through music and drama.
