Duluth, Minnesota. 1934. A community living on a knife-edge huddle together in the local guesthouse. The owner, Nick, owes more money than he can ever repay, his wife Elizabeth is losing her mind and their daughter Marianne is carrying a child no one will account for. And, when a preacher selling bibles and a boxer looking for a comeback show up in the middle of the night, things start to spiral beyond the point of no return…
Featuring the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan, Girl from the North Country is a show filled with hope, heartbreak and soul. As well as being written directed by Conor McPherson, the creative team for the production also includes designs by Rae Smith, lighting by Mark Henderson and sound by Simon Baker.
