Girl from the North Country
Noel Coward Theatre, London.
GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY 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, 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 exceptional 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... ★★★★★ ????? 'Not very often, a piece of theatre comes along that radiates an ineffable magic. Conor McPherson's musical play, is one such show. The rare alchemy with which McPherson fuses a dustbowl drama with the keening mysticism of Dylan's back catalogue makes it almost glow' Daily Telegraph, Claire Alfree ★★★★★ 'Conor McPherson weaves magic with Bob Dylan's songs' - The Observer ★★★★★ ????? 'A bona fide gem' 'Astonishing performances' Mark Shenton, Londontheatre ★★★★ '???? ?Beguiling performances in a well-deserved West End transfer? Evening Standard, Henry Hitchings ★★★★★ 'A tribute and a triumph' - Sunday Express ★★★★★ 'Astonishing' - The Guardian ★★★★ 'Sublime' - The Metro Original London cast production photography, by Manuel Harlan.
