Girl From the North Country

Girl From the North Country

4.4 (15) · New Writing

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.

Overview

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...

Critic reviews

Shirley Henderson is mesmerising

· Whats On Stage

Magnificent.

· The Independent

A superb cast use Bob’s back catalogue to glorious effect in Conor McPherson’s astonishing cross-section of hope and stoic suffering in Depression-era Minnesota.

· The Guardian

Girl from the North Country would feel imperfect and undersketched as either musical or play, but smush them together and you’ve got something.

· Time Out
