Girl From the North Country

Tue 7 Mar - Sat 11 Mar 2023



The double Olivier and Tony award-winning West End and Broadway smash-hit tours the UK and Ireland for the first time. 

Celebrated playwright Conor McPherson (The WeirThe Seafarer) boldly reimagines the legendary songs of Bob Dylan, like you’ve never heard them before, in Girl from the North Country. A heart-breaking and universal story about family and love, hailed by the Observer as the ‘No.1 theatre show of the year’.

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.

Now audiences in Leicester have the chance to experience this ‘magnificent’ (Standard), ‘astonishing’ (Guardian) and ‘piercingly beautiful’ (Independent) production brought vividly to life by an extraordinary company of actors and musicians.

Running time: 2 hours, 30 minutes (including interval)
Age recommendation: 12+ – This production contains haze, implication of smoking, gunshot and use of strong language.
