AN award-winning musical featuring the music of Bob Dylan is coming to Glasgow.

Girl from the North Country, written and directed by Conor McPherson, will run at the Theatre Royal from September 13 to 17. 

Set in 1930s America, the double Olivier-winning story follows a group of 'wayward' people who meet at crucial turning points in their lives, searching for their futures while hiding from the past. Glasgow Times:

Conor, who is also known for Rum & Vodka, The Veil and recently Uncle Vanya, spoke of his excitement of touring the show.

He said: “Collaborating with Bob Dylan has been a unique privilege for me. We have had an amazing journey opening on Broadway and in the West End but I feel particularly excited and moved to finally bring this work to my home town of Dublin and on tour around the UK.”
