Girl from the North Country
Written and directed by Conor McPherson. Music and lyrics by Bob Dylan
The critically acclaimed, double Olivier Award-winning Old Vic production returns to London for a limited West End season. Playing at the Gielgud Theatre for 8 weeks only from 10th December 2019.
"Bob Dylan's songs have never sounded so heartbreakingly personal & universal. As close as mortals come to heaven on Earth." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
1934. A time-weathered guesthouse in the heartland of America. Only a song can shake off the dust for one group of wayward souls-and old dreams may hold the promise of new beginnings. As they pass in and out of each other's lives, their stories awaken with passion, fury and extraordinary beauty.
Reimagining the music of Bob Dylan as roof-raising ensemble pieces and soul-stirring solos, celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer) writes and directs this heartbreaking and universal story about family and love. Hailed by the Observer as the 'NO.1 THEATRE SHOW OF THE YEAR' audiences now have the chance once again to experience this 'magnificent' (Standard), 'astonishing' (Guardian) and 'piercingly beautiful' (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.
"A show that transports the soul. Incredible"

Girl from the North Country was Theatre at its' finest. Brilliant acting, superb singing of Bob Dylan's songs. It was moving, atmospheric, and a million miles from the Musicals usually presented. A great show and I'm so glad my husband and I made the effort to see it.
