Bob Dylan's Girl From the North Country heading for Gielgud Theatre in December

Bob Dylan's Girl From The North Country acclaimed drama featuring songs written by him, is heading for a West End run. Written and directed by playwright Conor McPherson, it will begin previews at the Gielgud Theatre from December 10th-1st February 2020 following a run at the Royal Alexandra Theatre, Toronto and prior to the Broadway production opening in March 2020. It will feature a new cast with the exception of David Ganly and Finbar Lynch, who were in previous London productions.

The new cast is Colin Bates (Gene Laine), Katie Brayben (Elizabeth Laine), Anna Jane Casey (Mrs Burke), Nicholle Cherrie (ensemble), David Ganly (Mr Burke), Steffan Harri (Elias Burke), David Haydn (ensemble), Rachel John (Mrs Neilsen), Sidney Kean (Mr Perry), Finbar Lynch (Reverend Marlowe), Donald Sage Mackay (Nick Laine), Gloria Obianyo (Marianne), Ferdy Roberts (Dr Walker), Wendy Somerville (ensemble), Gemma Sutton (Katherine Draper), Shaq Taylor (Joe Scott) and Alan Vicary, Simon Gordon, Daniel Bailey (ensemble).

This show will differ from the one that opened at the Old Vic two years ago as it is  more in keeping with the Public Theatre version transferring to Broadway in March. There might be some different Dylan numbers at the Gielgud. ‘I can never resist with so many good songs,’ McPherson said.
