Featuring the songs of Bob Dylan beautifully reimagined, this feel-good tale of 1930s American life centres around a group of wanderers who cross paths at a Minnesota guest house. Standing at a turning point in their lives, they search for a future, hide from the past, and face unspoken truths about the present.

Written and directed by multi-award-winner Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer), Girl From The Country stars stage and screen icon Lisa McCune, Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon), Terence Crawford (The Babadook) and Helpmann Award winners Helen Dallimore and Peter Carroll.

Experience this modern masterpiece during its Australian Premiere season with Sydney Festival 2022, as it captures the hope and heartbreak written by Dylan himself, “May your heart always be joyful. May your song always be sung.”
