About the show

Two years after dazzling audiences at the Old Vic Theatre, Bob Dylan-inspired musical Girl from the North Country returns to the West End. With five Olivier Award nominations and a previous staging at the Noel Coward Theatre under its belt, this rousing musical plays at the Gielgud Theatre.

Set in Duluth, Minnesota during the height of the Depression, Girl from the North Country follows a family running a weathered and weary guesthouse. As Nick, Elizabeth and Marianne grapple with their own troubles, travellers rest their heads and pass through each other’s lives. But with the arrival of a preacher and boxer on the same night, hope and despair intertwine – all set to heartrending and soul-stirring music from Bob Dylan.

Casting includes Katie Brayben (Beautiful: The Carole King Story), Rachel John (Hamilton) and Emma-Jane Casey (Chicago).

The musical features a book and direction from McPherson, whose 1997 play The Weir won him an Olivier Award. Widely regarding as one of the leading lights in contemporary drama, his other plays include The Night Alive (2013) and The Seafarer (2006).

Other creatives are yet to be announced.

With songs including “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Forever Young” at its heart, Girl from the North Country at the Gielgud Theatre is a sublime combination of expert storytelling and beautiful music. It opens on 10 December 2019.

Who Should See It?

Any fans of Bob Dylan's music should get tickets to see this exciting interpretation of his work. With stellar writing from an award-winning playwright and a searching story, it has plenty of appeal for all.
