    Synopsis: 

    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.

    And, 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…

    Brought to life by a 20-piece company of actors and musicians, award-winning playwright Conor McPherson beautifully weaves the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan into this new show full of hope, heartbreak and soul.

    Girl From the North Country

    Ben Brantley

    July 26, 2017: LONDON — The Irish playwright Conor McPherson has gone a-wanderin’ in a Minnesota of the mind, a bleak and soulful place conjured by the songs of Bob Dylan. As portrayed in “Girl From the North Country” — the truly sui generis new work written and directed by Mr. McPherson, with a multitude of songs by Mr. Dylan — this cold corner of the United States is a place where it is all too easy to lose your way. That’s certainly true for the angry and bewildered characters in this strange theatrical hybrid of soaring music and thudding dialogue, which opened on Wednesday night at the Old Vic Theater here. As for Mr. McPherson, one of the greatest dramatists working, he, too, seems to be traveling through the dark without a compass.
