GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY CONOR MCPHERSON

MUSIC AND LYRICS BY BOB DYLAN

After rapturous critical acclaim and a sell-out season at THE OLD VIC, GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY now transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season. Award-winning playwright Conor McPherson beautifully weaves the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan into this powerful new show full of hope, heartbreak and soul. Don’t miss the unique opportunity to experience a 'magnificent' (Standard), 'astonishing' (Guardian) and 'piercingly beautiful' (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an exceptional company of actors and musicians.

Duluth, Minnesota. 1934. A community living on a knife-edge huddle together in the local guesthouse.

The owner, Nick, owes more money than he can ever repay, his wife Elizabeth is losing her mind and their daughter Marianne is carrying a child no-one will account for. When a preacher selling bibles and a boxer looking for a comeback show up in the middle of the night, things start to spiral beyond the point of no return...

★★★★★ 'Incredible. A show that transports the soul' - The Times

★★★★★ 'Not very often, a piece of theatre comes along that radiates an ineffable magic. Conor McPherson’s musical play, is one such show. The rare alchemy with which McPherson fuses a dustbowl drama with the keening mysticism of Dylan’s back catalogue makes it almost glow. Very Special' - Daily Telegraph

★★★★★ 'Original, beautiful and moving... 21 songs from Dylan’s back catalogue, in brilliantly unexpected arrangements' - Financial Times

★★★★★ 'Every now and then you see a show that reminds you why you love theatre. It's like nothing you've ever seen, and once you've witnessed it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it' - Broadwayworld.com

★★★★ 'What’s truly thrilling about the execution of this poignant show are Dylan’s songs – and the way they sound and feel when sung in a totally different context by some of the most nerve-tingling singers I’ve ever seen on stage' - Time Out

★★★★ 'Beguiling performances in a well-deserved West End transfer' - Evening Standard

★★★★ 'Flawless musical ode to Bob Dylan' - Metro

★★★★★ 'The cast is uniformly brilliant' - Whatsonstage.com

★★★★★ 'A bona fide gem' - Londontheatre

Full casting announced for the West End transfer.
