Casting is today announced for the West End transfer for Bob Dylan’s and Conor McPherson’s Girl From the North Country, following a sell-out, critically acclaimed run at The Old Vic.
Brought to life by an exceptional company of actors and musicians, award-winning playwright Conor McPherson beautifully weaves the iconic songbook of Bob Dylan into this new show full of hope, heartbreak and soul.
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.
Joining the previously announced cast will be Finbar Lynch who will play Reverend Marlowe and Ross Dawes who will form part of the ensemble.
The rest of the cast includes Sheila Atim, Hannah Azuonye, Bronagh Gallagher, David Ganly, Shirley Henderson, Ciaran Hands, Karl Johnson, Arinze Kene, Debbie Kurup, Sam Reid and Jack Shalloo.
Girl From The North Country is at The Noël Coward Theatre from 29th December 2017.
