Girl From the North Country at the Noel Coward Theatre

Description

Written and directed by Conor McPherson

Music and lyrics by Bob Dylan

After rapturous critical acclaim and a sell-out season at the OLD VIC THEATRE, ‘GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY’ now transfers to the West End for a strictly limited season. Award-winning playwright Conor McPherson beautifully weaves the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan into this powerful new show full of hope, heartbreak and soul. Don’t miss the unique opportunity to experience a “magnificent” (Standard), “astonishing” (Guardian) and “piercingly beautiful” (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

Duluth, Minnesota. 1934. 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. 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…
