Go to Girl From The North Country

25 August–3 September 2022

Multi award-winning hit musical Girl From the North Country by Conor McPherson, with music and lyrics by Bob Dylan, is coming to Canberra in August 2022.

One of the most critically acclaimed, multi award-winning productions of the 21st century, Girl From the North Country has taken the theatrical world by storm, selling out seasons in the West End, Toronto and Broadway since opening at The Old Vic in London. A story of American life in 1934 Minnesota, it centres on a community living on a knife-edge in the local guesthouse: the owner, Nick, owes more money than he can ever repay, his wife Elizabeth’s mind is slowly deteriorating, 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 turn up in the middle of the night, things start to spiral beyond the point of no return. Girl From the North Country features 20 of Dylan’s songs beautifully reimagined and woven through the story, including ‘Hurricane’, ‘I Want You’, ‘Slow Train Coming’, ‘Lay Lady Lay’ and ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, and stars multi Gold Logie winner, Lisa McCune (King And I, South Pacific), Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon, Wake In Fright), Terence Crawford (Escape from Pretoria, 1984), Helen Dallimore (Wicked [London], Legally Blond) and Helpmann Award winner, Peter Carroll.
