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.
Since opening at the Old Vic in London, Girl From The North Country has taken the theatrical world by storm, and is now one of the most critically acclaimed productions of the 21st century.
A universal story about family and love, this award-winning Broadway musical features over 20 songs from legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan including ‘Hurricane’, ‘Like a Rolling Stone’, ‘To Make You Feel My Love’ and ‘Forever Young’, all beautifully reimagined as you’ve never heard them before.
Travel back to 1934 Minnesota, where a group of wanderers cross paths at a guesthouse. Standing at a turning point in their lives, they realise nothing is what it seems, but as they search for a future, and hide from the past, they find themselves facing unspoken truths about the present.
Written and directed by multi award-winner Conor McPherson (The Weir; The Seafarer). Starring stage and screen icon Lisa McCune alongside Peter Kowitz (Janet King) and Helpmann Award winners Peter Carroll, Helen Dallimore and Greg Stone.
Hailed “A TRIUMPH!” (Washington Post), this uplifting story of American life promises to be the theatrical event of 2022.
