The Old Vic Theatre maintains its place at the top of the pile when it comes to high profile shows in 2017 as it welcomes a range of productions that will have audiences talking around the capital.
One of them is the latest work from Conor McPherson, which will combine a wonderful story with classic music of Bob Dylan to create something unique on a London stage. The result is the show Girl From The North Country, a story that takes audiences to the United States in the early decades of the 20th century.
Specifically, the show is set in the town of Duluth, next to Lake Superior in Minnesota, and it is here that we met a range of characters facing problems at a guest house during the Great Depression in the 1930s. A range of lonely individuals and families find themselves at the site and it might be up to one person to help them find a way out.
As a piece of work from acclaimed playwright Conor McPherson it is a show that audiences will wish to keep a close eye on. After all, it is not often that an acclaimed writer utilises the work of one of the world’s best known singer-songwriters to craft a show, making Girl From The North Country a must-see.
McPherson has been presenting his work since the 1990s, beginning with Rum And Vodka in 1992 and, later in the decade, The Weir in the West End, a show that earned him a Laurence Olivier Award in 1999. Since then he has also been behind shows likes of Dublin Carol, The Seafarer (which earned both Tony and Laurence Olivier Award nominations), The Veil and The Night Alive, to name but a few. Such shows have led to his esteem growing over the decades since he first emerged, making him one of the most exciting playwrights in the world.
And with that in mind Girl From The North Country has great company on McPherson’s list of credits and this makes it one of the must-see shows of 2017.
Girl From The North Country runs at the Old Vic Theatre from Wednesday 12th July 2017 and continues over the summer.
