"It resembles nothing so much as a collection of meticulously rendered short stories, soaked in quiet melancholy. There's a faint shimmer of self-conscious American mythologizing - was poverty really ever so poetically elegant? - but no matter. Because then there's the music."

The unequivocal songwriting talent of Bob Dylan lends itself to this quietly wonderful play by Connor McPherson. A tribute to his career and legacy in the most perfectly Dylan way possible, Girl From The North Country takes us on an anachronistic trip back in time to Depression-era Duluth, Minnesota where a cast of characters from the man's mind and songs are waiting to take us on an extraordinary journey into the ordinary.
Songs from every age of Dylan are precisely woven round the story of ... a boarding house owner on the edge of ruin and the citizens of the town who flock to it. Some are there for the long haul, some are there fleetingly, but within each lies equal measures of tragedy, hope and humanity.
Bereft of glossy sets and glitzy choreography, this 'play with songs' is a far cry from the usual jukebox musicals found in the West End and is all the better for it. Fans of Dylan will enjoy the atmosphere and loving way his songs are evoked and revered.
