Synopsis
“THE NO.1 THEATRE SHOW OF THE YEAR” — The Observer

After sell-out seasons in the West End and Broadway, Girl From The North Country has taken the theatrical world by storm.

An uplifting and joyful story of American life 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.

Featuring the reimagined songs of Bob Dylan and starring Lisa McCune, Zahra Newman, Helen Dallimore, Peter Carroll and Terence Crawford.

Written and directed by Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer), experience this modern masterpiece from January 5th as part of the 2022 Sydney Festival.

Starring Lisa McCune, Callum Francis, Zahra Newman, Peter Kowitz, Terence Crawford, Helen Dallimore, Peter Carroll, Christina O’Neill, Greg Stone, Grant Piro, Blake Erickson, Elizabeth Hay and James Smith, it features Dylan’s boldly reimagined, including Hurricane, I Want You, Slow Train Coming, Lay Lady Lay and Like A Rolling Stone.

Chemon Theys, Samantha Morley, Tony Black, Liam Wigney, Tony Cogin and Laurence Coy feature in the impressive ensemble, with a band featuring Mark Harris, Tracey Lynch and Cameron Henderson performing live on stage under Musical Director Andrew Ross.

The uplifting and joyful story features a fascinating cast of characters including Peter Kowitz (AFI winner and veteran of dozens of productions with STC, QTC, State Theatre Company SA and Bell Shakespeare) as Nick Laine, the guesthouse’s owner, with Lisa McCune (multi Gold Logie winner and star of King And I, South Pacific) as his wife Elizabeth. Their daughter Marianne is played by stage and screen star Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon, Wentworth, Wake In Fright) with their son Gene played by James Smith (Jasper Jones, Euphoria and Hibernation for State Theatre Company SA) and his girl Katherine, played by Elizabeth Hay (the Helpmann Award winning Emil and the Detectives, Hibernation, The Gods of Strangers).

Mrs Burke is played by Helpmann Award winner Helen Dallimore (Wicked [London’s West End], Legally Blonde, Muriel’s Wedding the Musical, Spring Awakening) and her husband, played by Greg Stone (Glengarry Glen Ross, Stuff Happens, Oklahoma!, Funny Girl); their son Elias, played by Blake Erickson (The Dismissal, Shrek, Mamma Mia!); Christina O’Neill (Calamity Jane, Vivid White and Avenue Q, for which she won a Helpmann Award) as the widowed Mrs Neilsen; Mr Perry, played by Peter Carroll (Helpmann Award winning star of over 100 productions, and recent recipient of an AM

for services to the theatre); Dr Walker, played by stage and screen legend Terence Crawford (Romeo & Juliet, The Seagull, Hedda Gabler, 1984 and films Escape from Pretoria and The Babadook); Callum Francis (Kinky Boots) as a washed up boxer; and Grant Piro (host of ABC TV’s Couch Potato, Hello, Dolly!, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Oklahoma!) as a mysterious preacher.
