About Girl From the North Country

Be transported to the wretched heart of Dust Bowl America by the haunting beauty of Bob Dylan’s songs in this “instant classic”. Having received much critical acclaim during its sold-out run at the Old Vic, this production, from award-winning playwright Conor McPherson, intertwines 20 of Dylan’s songs from his 50-year back catalogue with a Depression-era story that is both “inspired” and “piercingly beautiful”.

Girl from the North Country will take up residence in the West End’s Noël Coward Theatre for a limited time. Don’t miss the chance to experience this extraordinary production full of hope, heartbreak and soul, brought to life by a 20-piece company of actors and musicians. 


Cast for the West End run is to be announced.

The original Old Vic cast included: Sheila Atim (Marianne Laine), Ron Cook (Doctor Walker), Bronagh Gallagher (Mrs Burke), Shirley Henderson (Elizabeth Laine), Ciaran Hinds (Nick Laine), Claudia Jolly (Katherine Draper), Arinzé Kene (Joe Scott), Debbie Kurup (Mrs Neilsen), Kirsty Malpass (Ensemble), Jim Norton (Mr Perry), Tom Peters (Ensemble), Karl Queensborough (Ensemble), Sam Reid (Gene Laine), Michael Shaeffer (Reverend Marlowe), Jack Shalloo (Elias Burke), and Stanley Townsend(Mr Burke).

What's the story?

A desolate community on the brink of crisis huddle together in a local guesthouse.

The owner, Nick, owes more money than he can ever repay, his wife Elizabeth has descended into madness, and their adopted daughter Marianne is carrying a child no-one will account for and is refusing to marry the elderly salesman suggested by her father.

And, when a blackmailing preacher selling bibles and a fugitive boxer looking for a comeback arrive in the middle of the night, things start to spiral beyond the point of no return…
