An Olivier Award Winning New Production!
The music of Bob Dylan is expertly woven through the lives of a small town in Depression Era Minnesota in Conor McPherson's exquisite new play, making its Toronto premiere this fall. Recently showing on London's West End, critics praised its spellbinding and transformative effect, citing it as a must see for Dylan fans.
A tribute to his career and legacy in the most perfectly Dylan way possible, Girl From The North Country takes us on an anachronistic trip back in time to Depression-era Duluth, Minnesota where a cast of characters from the man's mind and songs are waiting to take us on an extraordinary journey into the ordinary.
Songs from every age of Dylan are precisely woven round the story of a boarding house owner on the edge of ruin and the citizens of the town who flock to it. Some are there for the long haul, some are there fleetingly, but within each lies equal measures of tragedy, hope and humanity.
