Promising ‘a heartbreaking and universal story about family and love’, Conor McPherson’s Girl from the North Country arrives in Salford for a five-day run at the Lowry on Tue 20 Sep.

Hailed by The Observer as ‘the number one theatre show of the year’, the celebrated playwright’s ode to Great Depression Americana ingeniously reimagines the timeless songs of Bob Dylan ‘like you’ve never heard them before’.

Set in Minnesota in 1934, a group of disparate and wayward characters converge in a tumbledown guesthouse, each standing before their own spiritual crossroads, before realising that nothing is as it seems. As they search for the future while evading their past, they are forced to reckon with the unspoken reality of their present through a ‘powerful, affecting and original’ (Sunday Express) production of Bob Dylan’s greatest records.

Described as ‘as close as mortals come to heaven on earth’ by The New York TimesGirl from the North Country runs for seven shows at the Lowry, with tickets on sale now.
