The 3Olympia Theatre in Dublin was a buzz of excitement for the opening night of the the award-winning smash-hit production of Girl From The North Country.
Written and directed by celebrated playwright Conor McPherson, the double Olivier and Tony award-winning west end Broadway smash hit tours Ireland for the first time.
Girl From The North Country is an uplifting and universal story about family and love which boldly reimagines the legendary songs of Bob Dylan, like you’ve never heard them before.
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.
Writer and Director Conor McPherson said of the Dublin and UK Tour cast “It’s a joy to be working with our supremely talented new cast. Each of them brings a terrific range of experience and energy to the show. it’s an absolute delight to embark on this new adventure together.”
Bob Dylan said at the opening of the Broadway production: “To be associated with Conor is one of the highlights of my professional life. It goes without saying the man is a genius for putting this thing together and I’m thrilled to be a part of the experience. My songs couldn’t be in better hands.”
The production will run for a 5-week summer season at 3Olympia Theatre from 25 June – 30 July 2022.
