THE DOUBLE OLIVIER AND TONY AWARD-WINNING WEST END AND BROADWAY SMASH-HIT TOURS THE UK AND IRELAND FOR THE FIRST TIME.
WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY CONOR MCPHERSON
MUSIC AND LYRICS BY BOB DYLAN

Celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer) boldly reimagines the legendary songs of Bob Dylan, like you’ve never heard them before, in Girl From the North Country.
A heart-breaking and universal story about family and love, hailed by the Observer as the No.1 theatre show of the year’.

Now audiences in Newcastle have the chance to experience this ‘magnificent’ (Standard), ‘astonishing’ (Guardian) and ‘piercingly beautiful’ (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

It’s 1934 in the heartland of America and we meet a group of wayward souls who cross paths in a time-weathered guesthouse. Standing at a turning point in their lives, they realize 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.
