Girl from the North Country

Large Mixed Cast

Conor McPherson & Bob Dylan Price: $12.99

A new work from acclaimed author of The Weir which laces the electrifying drama with classic songs from Bob Dylan

The Nobel laureate's music and lyrics add a soulful authenticity to this Depression-era drama, where the 1930s America setting proves remarkably resonant for the world today

It's set in Duluth, Minnesota in 1934 where 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

In the middle of the night, they're joined by a Preacher selling bibles and a Boxer looking for a comeback

And things soon spiral to beyond the point of no return

Conor McPherson beautifully weaves the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan into a show full of hope and heartbreak

And, above all, Soul

It premiered at The Old Vic, London, July, 2017 directed by the author
