“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.
