The Old Vic hosts the world premiere of acclaimed playwright Conor McPherson’s Girl From The North Country, incorporating classic songs from Bob Dylan.

It's 1934, and in the midst of the Great Depression, a Duluth, Minnesota family sits on a knife edge, their future indeterminate. Lost and lonely people drift through the rooms of their 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… 

But Nick thinks he’s seen a way out.

Brought to life by a 20-piece company of actors and musicians, award-winning playwright Conor McPherson beautifully weaves the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan into this new show full of hope, heartbreak and soul.  

Please note this show contains some moderate use of strong language and adult themes.
