Girl From North Country


Every day, 7:30pm to 10pm Thursday 6 January to Sunday 30 January


Starting from: $49.90 + BF

After sold out seasons on the West End and Broadway, Girl From The North Country has taken the theatrical world by storm and is now one of the most critically acclaimed productions of the 21st Century. 

Featuring the songs of Bob Dylan beautifully reimagined, this feel-good tale of 1930s American life centres around a group of wanderers who cross paths at a Minnesota guest house. Standing at a turning point in their lives, they search for a future, hide from the past, and face unspoken truths about the present. 

Written and directed by multi award-winner Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer), Girl From The Country _stars stage and screen icon Lisa McCune, Zahra Newman (_The Book of Mormon), Terence Crawford (The Babadook) and Helpmann Award winner, the legendary Peter Carroll.  

Experience this modern masterpiece during its strictly limited Australian Premiere season with Sydney Festival 2022, as it captures the hope and heartbreak written by Dylan himself, “May your heart always be joyful. May your song always be sung.”

★★★★★ "Beguiling, soulful and exquisitely heart-breaking" - London Evening Standard

Duration: 2 hours 30 mins
