Background


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 exceptional company of actors and musicians.
