Girl From The North Country makes West End switch

First Published 4 October 2017, Last Updated 24 April 2020

The Old Vic’s critically acclaimed production of Bob Dylan’s and Conor McPherson’s Girl From The North Country will transfer to the West End’s Noël Coward Theatre this New Year period.

Due to exceptional demand, the show, which features a company of actors and musicians weaving the iconic songbook of Dylan into a story of hope, heartbreak and soul, will preview from 29 December 2017, with press night 11 January 2018. Casting remains to be announced.

Girl From The North Country transports audiences to Duluth, Minnesota, in 1934. A local guesthouse hosts a community on the edge, with debts accumulating, anxieties mounting, and a pregnancy nobody will account for. When a preacher selling bibles, and a boxer looking for a comeback show, arrive in the middle of the night, events spiral beyond the point of no return.

Of the announcement, writer and director McPherson said: “Working with this stunning cast and the incredible music of Bob Dylan at The Old Vic has been an amazing pleasure and privilege. I’m delighted that audiences will continue to have the opportunity to enjoy our show as we move into the West End.”

“I’d like to thank everyone who has brought Girl From The North Country to life and I look forward hugely to our next steps in this intriguing journey.”

Girl From The North Country’s Official London cast recording was recently announced, featuring songs from every period of Bob Dylan’s catalogue, including hits Tight Connection To My Heart, Like A Rolling Stone/To Make You Feel My Love, and the titular song Girl From The North Country.

The production’s transfer will play from Friday 29 December 2017 – Saturday 31 March 2018, having concluded its run at The Old Vic this coming Saturday (7 October).
