After sell-out seasons in the West End and Broadway, Girl From The North Country has taken the theatrical world by storm.

An uplifting and joyful story of American life in 1934 Minnesota, a group of wanderers cross paths at a guesthouse. Standing at a turning point in their lives, they realise nothing is what it seems.

Featuring the reimagined songs of Bob Dylan and starring Lisa McCune, Zahra Newman, Helen Dallimore, Peter Carroll and Terence Crawford.

Written and directed by Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer), experience this modern masterpiece at Theatre Royal Sydney.

Girl From The North Country runs for two hours and 30 minutes, which includes a 20-minute interval.


A gorgeous poignant piece.
A towering performance.
Sydney Morning Herald
As close as mortals come to heaven on Earth.
Ben Brantley, The New York Times Critics Pick
Nothing less than a Broadway revelation.
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
The marriage of Conor McPherson’s storytelling and Bob Dylan’s sharp songwriting is a perfect fit.
Tim Teeman, Daily Beast
