Featuring music and lyrics by Bob Dylan, the double Olivier Award-winning West End and Broadway smash hit returns to the UK as part of a major international tour.

Celebrated playwright Conor McPherson 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, it is set in 1934 in the heartland of America.
