John
Dagleish

Winner of the Olivier Award for best actor in a musical for his performance in Sunny Afternoon as Ray Davies. 

It's hard to praise sufficiently the phenomenal lead performance given by John Dagleish as Ray. He sings and plays guitar with both attack and elan, and convinces totally as a young man confused and underwhelmed by the arrival of fame.

Fiona Mountford
London Evening Standard on Sunny Afternoon

John Dagleish is immense as Davies, capturing his quirkiness and charisma.

HENRY HITCHINGS

Branagh and Dench are surrounded by a first-rate team... John Dagleish is a suitably nimble-fingered Autolycus.
