Premiering at London’s Old Vic theatre to unanimous rave reviews, Girl From The North Country is a new play by award-winning writer/director Conor McPherson, using interpretations of the classic songs of Bob Dylan. The play, set in Dylan’s hometown of Duluth, Minnesota in 1934, centres on a community living on a knife-edge 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. And, 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.

Brought to life by a 20-piece company of well-known actors and musicians, the play beautifully weaves the iconic Dylan songbook into a story full of hope, heartbreak and soul, featuring songs from every period of Dylan’s catalogue, in stunning new musical arrangements by Simon Hale. The Original London Cast Recording took place at the iconic Abbey Road Studios.
