  • "BOB DYLAN's songs have never sounded so
    HEARTBREAKINGLY PERSONAL & UNIVERSAL.
    AS CLOSE AS MORTALS COME TO HEAVEN ON EARTH."

    - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

    1934. A time-weathered guesthouse in the heartland of America. Only a song can shake off the dust for one group of wayward souls-and old dreams may hold the promise of new beginnings. As they pass in and out of each other's lives, their stories awaken with passion, fury and extraordinary beauty.

    Reimagining the music of Bob Dylan as roof-raising ensemble pieces and soul-stirring solos, celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer) writes and directs this heartbreaking and universal story about family and love. Hailed by the Observer as the 'NO.1 THEATRE SHOW OF THE YEAR' audiences now have the chance once again to experience this 'magnificent' (Standard), 'astonishing' (Guardian) and 'piercingly beautiful' (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

    The cast will include Katie Brayben, Donald Sage Mackay, Anna Jane Casey and Rachel John. Katie Brayben will play Elizabeth Laine. Brayben originated the role of Carole King in the West End production of Beautiful, for which she was awarded the Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical. Further credits include MAMMA MIA! and King Charles III. Donald Sage Mackay returns to the West End to play Nick Laine, after featuring in True West. Television credits include: Modern Family, Mad Men, Fraiser, The Good Wife, House, West Wing, Criminal Minds, Weeds, Star Trek Enterprise, ER & Scrubs. Film Credits include: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Anna-Jane Casey plays Mrs Burke, fresh from a UK tour of Calendar Girls. Previous West End credits include Billy Elliot, Stepping Out & Spamalot. West End regular Rachel John will join the cast as Mrs Neilsen. John's West End credits include: Hamilton, The Bodyguard, Memphis, We Will Rock You, Sister Act & Lion King.

    Full confirmed UK cast: Daniel Bailey (Ensemble), Colin Bates (Gene Laine), Katie Brayben (Elizabeth Laine), Anna Jane Casey (Mrs Burke), Nicholle Cherrie (Ensemble), David Ganly (Mr Burke), Simon Gordon (Ensemble), Steffan Harri (Elias Burke), David Haydn (Ensemble), Rachel John (Mrs Neilsen), Sidney Kean (Mr Perry), Finbar Lynch (Reverend Marlow), Donald Sage Mackay (Nick Laine), Gloria Obianyo (Marianne), Ferdy Roberts (Dr Walker) Wendy Somerville (Ensemble), Gemma Sutton(Katherine Draper) and Shaq Taylor (Joe Scott) and Alan Vicary (Ensemble).

What people are saying about Girl from the North Country

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best piece of theatre I have seen in a long time! I went to see this at the Old Vic as a lifelong Bob Dylan fan. I returned there for two more performances because the play is such a moving experience and the reworking of the songs is just exquisite. As a member of the “No one sings Dylan like Dylan” mentality I have been obliged to rethink! Have seen the play at the Noël Coward theatre once and will be returning for two more performances. Just can’t get enough of it! Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in this production and I sincerely hope that Mr Dylan has been to see for himself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This show has overshadowed many others I have now seen the show 6 times.... I have bought tickets as presents for friends and some of them have been back again.... we have taken our 7 year old daughter twice (it was when she was singing along to the soundtrack and explains to us what the songs were about we realised we should take her..... She loved it so much, we took her again)... we are going again before the show finishes in March. The music stays with you as do the images of the characters. I close my eyes and see each episode. A huge thank you to everybody!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best shows I’ve seen We went to see this as my partner is a massive Dylan fan I myself am not however the songs were so good and beautifully portrayed good acting I am not surprised this has gone to the west end and I would fully recommend it even if your not a Dylan fan also you can buy a cd of the performance and it’s always on in the car
