Review: Girl from the North Country

The double Olivier and Tony award-winning West End and Broadway smash-hit tours the UK and Ireland for the first time.

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‘.

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.

Bob Dylan’s songs have never sounded so heartbreakingly personal & universal. As close as mortals come to heaven on Earth.


Watch a gorgeous rendition of Like A Rolling Stone, led by Frances McNamee, to get a glimpse of how Girl From The North Country reimagines Bob Dylan’s legendary songs.

Now audiences in the UK 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 was a breath-taking show at The Liverpool Empire Theatre. I went through a range of emotions from laughing to tears in my eyes. Frances McNamee was absolutely amazing. The way she transitioned between characters was exceptional. I took my 7 year old son who couldn’t take his eyes off the show. Loved every minute. Its a must see.
