Girl From the North Country Tickets

The Old Vic is proud to present the World Premiere of Girl From the North Country, an electrifying new work from esteemed playwright Conor McPherson along with classic songs from Bob Dylan.

Duluth, Minnesota in the midst of the Great Depression.

A family adrift, their future on a knife edge. Lost and lonely people drifting through rooms of their guesthouse. But Nick Laine thinks he’s seen a way out…

Conor McPherson received the 1999 Olivier Award for Best New Play for The Weir and is considered to be one of the great contemporary Irish playwrights. His works have been produced both in the West End and on Broadway, including Shining City, The Seafarer and The Night Alive which received the 2014 New York Drama Critics Circle award for Best Play.

The legendary Bob Dylan recently received the Nobel Prize in Literature for his poetic expression through song. A prominent figure in the music industry for over 50 years, Dylan has received 12 Grammy Awards, an Oscar and is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His music has inspired millions, and was a revolutionary sound for America in the 1960s. His hit songs include ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’, ‘The Times They Are a-Changin’’, ‘Desolation Row’ and ‘Like A Rolling Stone.’
