Overview

Since opening at the Old Vic Theatre in London, Girl From The North Country has taken the theatrical world by storm, selling out seasons in the West End, Toronto and on Broadway, and is now one of the most critically acclaimed new productions of the 21st Century, starring Australian stage and screen icon Lisa McCune, Zahra Newman, Peter Kowitz, Helen Dallimore, James Smith, Elizabeth Hay, Terry Crawford, Peter Carroll and many more.

Written and directed by Olivier Award winner Conor McPherson, this spiritually soaring show takes the legendary songs of Bob Dylan and reimagines them as the profoundly beautiful anthems of a plaintive America. Set in 1934 Minnesota, 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.

The Times called it “an instant classic” and the New York Times praised it as “a ravishing and singular musical … with voices that light up the night with a divine grace.”

Fresh from its run at the Sydney Festival, the Adelaide season of Girl From The North Country at the newly restored Her Majesty’s Theatre will encourage your heart to “always be joyful” and your song to “always be sung”.
